Education is a life-long process, encompassing intellectual and life experiences that affect personal development. This process is best achieved in a milieu that recognizes the worth of the individual and fosters mutual inquiry. University education promotes intellectual development, assists the individual in finding a way of life that is consistent with fulfillment of one’s own needs, and enhances one’s ability to serve society. It provides individuals with a broad knowledge base and skills to think critically, communicate effectively, develop self-understanding, and adapt to and institute change. Professional education builds on this general educational base and provides individuals with a specialized body of knowledge and expertise. (2015)
Each person is a unique being worthy of respect, with a personal history, intrinsic value, and a right to influence her/his destiny. Humans are integrated beings consisting of biological, psychosocial, cognitive, and spiritual aspects. Each individual is a part of the culture of her/his family, other groups, communities, and the larger society. Human beings share certain common characteristics, are interdependent, and need social interaction.
Nursing is a systematic, deliberate caring process with individuals, families, and communities in promoting health, reducing risk, preventing disease, managing illness, and supporting clients in all phases of living and dying. This process is based on a unique combination of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that incorporate the professional values of caring, respect, and a commitment to social justice. Inherent in this process is support for the dignity of the individual, advocacy for one’s right to self-determine care, and recognition of the uniqueness of each person as an individual, a family member, and a member of society. Nursing is practiced independently and collaboratively in the context of organizations and communities.
