  • The School of Nursing

    The mission of the School of Nursing at Monroe College is to educate students and to cultivate their capacity for lifelong learning, to foster competent, culturally sensitive nursing care, and to bring innovative, socially responsible leadership to the nursing profession. 

    Nursing affects the care of persons for the purposes of illness prevention, maintenance, and restoration of health. Within the framework of the nursing process of assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation, a holistic and evidence-based approach to nursing care is created, the goal of which is to care for all aspects of the person: psychological, emotional, physical, cultural and spiritual.

    The School of Nursing at Monroe College is a member of the NLN-National League for Nursing, AACN-American Association of Colleges of Nursing, & INACSL-International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation & Learning.

    Culturally Competent Care

    It is the belief of the School of Nursing faculty that an increasingly diverse patient population requires cultural competence to be integrated into all aspects of nursing care. Nurses provide care freely without judgement or prejudice, value the differences among persons, and implement care that is within the cultural context of the person. The faculty believes that the nursing program has a responsibility to educate students in culturally competent nursing care through self-assessment, knowledge and respect of different cultures, understanding of the disparities in healthcare, comprehensive cultural assessment of individuals, families and communities, and an understanding of the advocacy role of nursing. By embracing diversity, we strengthen nursing education that promotes culturally sensitive care for all human beings.
