Nurses have an important role in the interprofessional health care team. The goal of nursing is to promote safe, quality health outcomes for all individuals in our care. Nurses promote health through skill in assessment, provision of care, education, and advocacy for the individuals they serve. At Roberts Wesleyan College, students are equipped with knowledge and skills to serve with excellence in a variety of health care settings.
We believe that nurses view clients as unique spiritual beings and see professional nurses as leaders within the health care system promoting wholeness of individuals, families, groups, and communities. We believe that caring and the relationship formed between the nurse and client are central to nursing, for they create an environment that enables clients to progress toward health and wholeness.
Nursing majors registered for clinical courses are responsible for showing evidence that they have had rubella or its vaccination, required immunizations, an annual physical, and an annual tuberculin testing. CPR and First Aid certification must be maintained while in the clinical courses.
