The philosophy of the College of Nursing is consistent with the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka and with the goals and mission of R.G.U.H.S. The college Philosophy focuses upon the nature of the person, enviorment, health, the profession of Nursing and the process of education.
The faculty believe that the person is a unique and continuously evolving being of dignity and growth. The person’s behaviour reflects the interaction between personal and environmental influences. Each person has the right to participate in making decisions which will affect health and to accept or refuse health care within the context of safety to society.
The faculty view enviorment as well external influences affecting life and development of the person. The health of the individuals, families, and communities is affected by these influences.
Nursing is the diagnosis and treatment of actual or potential health problems. Nursing involves supportive and therapeutic interventions based on theoretical and scientific knowledge. The goal of nursing is to promote health throughout the lifespan, prevent illness, restore and/or maintain with dignity essential life functions altered by illness. As health care professionals nurses exert leadership to achieve a viable system of health care delivery and assure quality nursing care. The nurse’s role is that of a healthcare provider who both independently and in collaboration with other assesses, Nursing is a synthesis of art and science. The art of nursing requires that the practitioner apply knowledge gained from the humanities, arts, and sciences to understand human needs. This knowledge provides the foundation for the acceptance and appreciation of the values of a person which may differ from those of the nurse. The science of nursing is the contemplation, exploration, and research of the person, environment and health.
Education for professional nursing practice includes sound theoretical, knowledge base to support experiential learning. Faculty believe the education process facilitates continuing personal and professional growth in which the responsibility for outcomes is mutually shared by students and faculty. The intent of educational programs is to focus on the learner. Education is a lifelong process, with the commitment of the learner to establish patterns of continued inquiry.
