The educational program of St. Francis Medical Center School of Nursing is based on Christian values, which advocate principles of social justice, stewardship and courage. These principles advocate for a society in which all can realize their full potential and achieve the common good.

The faculty believe that each human is a unique, holistic being with biological, psychological, socio-cultural and spiritual dimensions who has varying degrees of self-care ability. We further believe that each human has dignity and intrinsic worth through all stages of development and constantly influences and is influenced by the ever changing environment. This environment consists of all the forces that impact on man, and includes culture, family, community, society, and the physical universe.

Health is a state of wholeness or integrity of the individual. Health is a relative dynamic state that continuously alters as a person adapts to changes. Wellness is a state in which the individual, family and community are able to function at an optimal level throughout the life cycle. Illness is a process in which the self-care capacity of a person is diminished when compared to one's previous condition.

Nursing is a professional discipline with both art and science components. It involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the individual's, family's and community's responses to actual and/or potential health needs. The nurse functions independently, inter-dependently and dependently in multiple roles in collaboration with others. The nurse uses nursing process, critical thinking skills, therapeutic communication and entrusted resources to promote optimal health and provide compassionate care.

Education is a cooperative process involving teachers and learners in the pursuit of knowledge through planned and purposeful learning experiences designed to result in cognitive and behavioral changes. Each individual has a unique learning style and learns at his or her own pace. Education is most effective when it encourages self-direction and the internalization of the concept that learning is a lifelong process.

Nursing education incorporates knowledge from nursing, the humanities and the physical, biological, social and psychological sciences. Nursing education is a continuous process, whereby the art and science of nursing are translated into responsible nursing practice.

The faculty are responsible for developing and implementing a curriculum which evolves from a synthesis of our beliefs about health, nursing and education. Opportunities are provided for students to grow intellectually and in self-awareness. Experiences are also provided for students to develop a sensitivity to and an appreciation of the diverse cultural and societal needs of the community, which includes the underserved population
