Our nurses have become effective practitioners, administrators and educators in all areas of nursing and healthcare delivery.
The mission of the department of Nursing is to prepare women and men as professional nurses who integrate the liberal arts and sciences with the knowledge and skills essential for patient-centered nursing practice. Graduates are caring, ethical health care providers who support the dignity of others and promote holistic, evidence-based practice in a variety of settings.
The outstanding reputation of the College of Mount St. Joseph’s Department of Nursing is built on more than eight decades of educating nurses who've become effective practitioners, administrators and educators in nursing and health care delivery in the United States and globally.
The Department of Nursing provides educational and experiential opportunities for students to meet new challenges in the health and nursing needs of individuals across the lifespan, acute-care and community-based settings, as well as educating clients to maintain optimal levels of health and wellness.
The College has a state-of-the-art nursing lab and simulation center, which is is used as a practice setting to develop skills that can be transferred to the clinical area. The greatest strength of Department of Nursing is the faculty who are highly qualified professionals dedicated to preparing future nurses for the dynamic health care environment.
The Department goals are to prepare nursing graduates to:
- Implement safe, effective and culturally sensitive therapeutic interventions, based on assessment data.
- Communicate effectively with individuals, families, groups and populations.
- Develop caring relationships with clients from diverse populations.
- Apply principles of leadership and management while working in interdisciplinary teams.
