Department of Adult Health Nursing

Department Vision and Mission

Adult Health Nursing is one of three departments at the Faculty of Nursing established in 2005-2006, contributing courses and faculty expertise to the undergraduate programs in the Faculty of Nursing. Consistent with the mission and vision of the Faculty of Nursing and the HU, the department's vision is based on the fact that nursing is the art, science, and discipline of caring for people through the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health and wholeness across the life span.

Nursing education, therefore, is both experiential and theoretical. It draws from adult learning principles which relate to the student as an active participant with progressive responsibility for independent learning. The department's educational activities are planned and executed in a dynamic manner that stimulates intellectual inquiry, independent judgment, critical thinking and the internalization of professional values as well as skills.
