  • School of Nursing


    To provide excellence in teaching and scholarship, and support aspiring nursing professionals to enhance the health of our community.


    The nursing program is built upon the belief that an increasingly diverse patient population requires cultural competence to be integrated into all aspects of nursing care. The goal is for students to learn how to apply cultural concepts to practice through an individualized, holistic plan of care. Culturally competent nursing care is promoted through self-assessment, knowledge, and respect of different cultures, understanding of the disparities in health care, comprehensive cultural assessments of individuals, families and communities, skill to communicate with individuals, families and groups with diverse language and cultural backgrounds, identification of resources, and an understanding of the advocacy role of nursing. By embracing diversity, the nursing program provides education that promotes culturally sensitive care for all human beings.

    The faculty is committed to the core values of Monroe College. Students are our first priority, and we work to create a respectful, caring, learning environment, and to accomplish institutional effectiveness for students to achieve academic goals and develop as professional nurses. The nursing program provides students the education and experience to provide safe, competent nursing care in a variety of health care settings. The program outcomes incorporate the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) Health Care Core Competencies which establishes the standard for nurses to provide patient-centered care, work on interdisciplinary teams, employ evidence-based practice, apply quality improvement, and use of informatics. 

    The Upper Division Nursing program is built upon the belief that professional nursing practice has its roots at the baccalaureate level. The scope of nursing practice is expanded from individuals and families to community and populations, knowledge of leadership skills, and synthesis of evidence-based research.

    In addition to IOM and QSEN, the Baccalaureate program includes the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (AACN Essentials) which provide the framework for curricular development and evaluation to promote optimum student achievement.
