School of Nursing Mission and Philosophy
In accordance with the mission statement of Rasmussen University, the School of Nursing mission is to cultivate a learning environment that develops a skill set for critical thinking, clinical reasoning, and clinical judgment. The School of Nursing strives to educate students in the development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to provide safe and competent nursing care in the diverse communities we serve.
The School of Nursing Philosophy is anchored in the belief that nursing education should prepare students to function safely and effectively in the role of the nurse. We believe that nursing education should provide students an opportunity to progress within a laddered curriculum in order to enhance the profession of nursing and to serve as a foundation for life-long learning.
Nurses should be prepared to provide ethical, holistic, and compassionate care to diverse populations in a variety of settings. These goals are accomplished by including the standards set forth by our governing bodies, as well as evidenced-based research provided by our colleagues, and the values and criteria promoted by our national nursing organizations into our curriculum.
