In keeping with the aims and commitment of Berea College, the mission of the Nursing Program is to prepare students with great promise and limited economic resources for the practice of professional nursing in a variety of health care settings, and to provide a foundation for graduate study in nursing.
The philosophy of the Nursing Program faculty about key constructs and concepts provide the foundation for the program. Caring is viewed as the paradigm for the program. The key concepts existing within that paradigm are critical thinking/teaching-learning, person, nursing, environment, and health.
