Mission of Adelphi University School of Nursing
The mission of the Adelphi University School of Nursing is to advance the art and science of nursing, and to promote scholarship in nursing. Through nursing research, education, and practice, students and faculty seek to enhance the quality of life for all people.
Philosophy of the School of Nursing
Nursing is both an art and a science, built on a foundation of knowledge, theory and research. Nursing makes unique and distinct contributions to the health care system and to society as a whole. The goal of nursing care is to address human needs across the lifespan, to promote, protect, maintain, and restore health and human dignity. Nurses act as compassionate providers of care, managers, leaders, educators, researchers, consultants, advocates, and collaborators.
The faculty of the Adelphi University School of Nursing believe that nursing education provides the foundation that will guide future nursing practice. Education at all levels, baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral, is oriented toward preparing students to participate fully in the health care system, and in the care of patients, families, communities and aggregate populations. As nurses, we strive to promote wellness and eliminate disparities within the context of increasing globalization of health care. As a faculty, we believe in a student-faculty partnership, with each assuming responsibility to meet these components of nursing education: scholarship; dissemination of knowledge; utilization and evaluation of evidence-based practices and technological advances, collaboration, and a commitment to quality and core values.
The faculty, staff, and student body of the Adelphi University School of Nursing embrace and aspire to exemplify the following core values in all aspects of our education and professional work.
