We believe nursing is a professional discipline, grounded in its own body of knowledge, advancing with emerging technologies.  Working collaboratively with members of the health care team, nurses utilize critical reasoning to provide quality and compassionate care.  Nurses are accountable for their individual practice, are guided by legal and ethical principles and professional values of caring, while respecting the unique and diverse attributes of others.

We believe education is a dynamic partnership, shared between teacher and learner, promoting a safe and caring environment for both.  Learning must be an active and interactive process responding to the diversity of the world around us.  Focusing on evidence-based practice, we strive in our educational endeavors to create the platform for creativity, mutual respect and collaboration, as we foster commitment to inquiry that lasts a lifetime.
