Mission/Service-Learning Opportunities

Christian professional nurses demonstrate the love of God through caring about the whole person. The Christian nurse is able to assess and provide direct and collaborative spiritual care while respecting each person's unique beliefs by maintaining a non-judgmental, patient-centered approach. Learning is a partnership between faculty and students. Faculty members provide a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment where caring behaviors are modeled in all interactions.
