The faculty of the nursing institution believes that:
The basic course in nursing is a formal educational preparation which should be based on sound educational principles as the foundation on which the practice of nursing is built, and on which further education depends.
- Nursing is a profession, which is influenced by advances in services and technology. So, nurses need to evaluate the curriculum periodically and make the required changes, both in theory and practice.
- The nature of nursing is such that a substantial portion of the student’s learning is acquired in the clinical area with the provision of appropriate clinical facilities and clinical guidance with Periodical evaluation.
- Persons drawn to nursing have concern for others’ welfare, a belief in personal efficiency and a desire to actively engage in life activities.
- Professional and non-professional personnel who are organized into self-directed team work can best provide high quality of nursing care.
- When jobs for nursing personnel are designed, the leader needs to ensure employees autonomy, quality patient care, patient satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and self actualization.
- Nursing leader has a responsibility in helping the student develop pride in the profession and in guiding her/him with respect to the future in nursing by demonstrating a high standard of professional behavior.
