The profession of nursing involves caring for and about people. Health, the goal of nursing practice, is achieved by working with persons in a manner that respects individuals' beliefs and values. The Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Programme assists students to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to help people achieve and maintain health.
The learning environment of the programme is based on the belief that students and faculty are equal partners in the educational process. Students by being actively involved in the learning process develop an appreciation of, and responsibility for the discovery of knowledge. Faculty facilitate learning by serving as resource persons and role models and by challenging students to be self-directed and creative.
The learning opportunities provided acknowledge that nursing is a practice discipline whose
service is provided in any and all settings where persons function. Practicing nurses within these
settings provide valuable assistance in the students development of competencies required for
beginning nursing practice.
