Consistent with Dominican's mission, we educate baccalaureate level nurses who are prepared to provide professionally competent, culturally sensitive, and ethically grounded nursing care, who respect the innate dignity of human life, demonstrate leadership through multidisciplinary collaborations, and model good citizenship within a global community.
The educators and staff at the Department of Nursing all work to promote learning in an atmosphere that acknowledges the learner's unique needs and capabilities and provides a system of student support. We believe that mutual inquiry and respect facilitate the teaching-learning process. Recognizing that motivation and self-direction are essential to learning, the teacher serves as facilitator, role model, and resource person rather than solely as a transmitter of knowledge and skills.
