The Nursing department is committed to providing a student - learning environment that encourages and assesses a spirit of inquiry, clinical competence, professional accountability, and effective communication skills for a diverse student population. We believe these attributes will prepare our graduates to the pass the NCLEX - RN®, and to provide and manage safe, cost - effective care to meet client needs. The faculty have developed a conceptual framework utilizing the concepts of client needs, nursing intervention classifications, and nursing outcome classifications. Each course emphasizes growth and development, communication, the nursing process, nutrition and diet therapy, pharmacology, management, and legal and ethical issues.
