5 Welcome On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Department of Nursing and Allied Health, we welcome you to what promises to be an exciting year at Norfolk State University and within the Department of Nursing and Allied Health. We welcome the students who are enrolled in the Traditional BSN Program Track, RN to BSN Program Track, the Second Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program Track, and the LPN to BSN Program Track.

The faculty will be working diligently to foster critical thinking so that you might excel in the classroom, in the clinical setting, and on the NCLEX-RN, leading to a wonderful career in professional nursing. At the beginning of each year, we offer The Nursing Success Institute (NSI) which is designed to promote the success of new and returning students. NSI participants are involved in activities to improve math skills, knowledge of medical terminology, writing skills, study skills, critical thinking abilities, test-taking abilities and professional behaviors.

7 PHILOSOPHY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF NURSING AND ALLIED HEALTH The Department of Nursing and Allied Health embraces the mission of the University, which has historically provided educational programs responsive to the needs of the community. The philosophy of the Department of Nursing and Allied Health provides a holistic set of beliefs governing the bachelors degree programs. Society - dynamic system of interacting subsystems, the goals of which are to attain and to maintain a steady state. We believe that society is composed of diverse groupings of people across the life span reflecting various ethno-cultural orientations. The modification strategies used by these subsystems for the attainment and maintenance of the steady state are influenced by a multiplicity of factors that characterize society. These include ethical, legal, historical, religious, social, environmental, cultural, economic, and political factors. Person a bio-psycho-socio-cultural-spiritual being who is continually striving to maintain homeostasis and working towards maximal potential. As a member of a societal system, the individual is influenced by the multiplicity of factors that characterize society. The individual s ability to adapt within society is influenced further by developmental and maturational accomplishments. Health a dynamic state located on a continuum between wellness and illness. On this continuum, health reflects the inter-relationship among the biological, psychological, sociocultural, and spiritual components of the individual. The relative balance among these components influences the individual s state of health. The individual constantly seeks to attain and/or maintain an optimal level of health through self-directed care. Teaching/Learning an interactive process between teacher and learner, the outcomes of which include changes in cognitive, psychomotor, and affective behaviors. The process promotes selfunderstanding and motivation for continued learning and personal growth, thereby enhancing the development of the individual as a contributing, responsible member of the discipline of nursing and of society. Learning is most meaningful when it is related to the pursuit of the individual s personal goals. Individuals have varied learning styles and progress at different rates. The learner is viewed as a responsible participant who should be encouraged in self-expression, creativity, and freedom to discover. Learning is a lifelong process that builds on a foundation of concepts and skills from simple to complex, acquired from previous experiences. The teaching/learning process facilitates the development of critical thinking, decision-making and independent judgment. Furthermore, the process is enhanced by reinforcement, role modeling, and mutual respect between the teacher and the learner. In addition, teaching/learning is facilitated by the use of a variety of educational methods, incorporating multisensory approaches such as lecture/discussion, demonstration, role playing simulations, computerized technology and practical application in a variety of settings. Nursing - a critical subsystem of the health care delivery system. Its goal is to maximize the self-care potential of individuals and groups of all ages regardless of their location on the wellness-illness continuum. The focus of nursing is to promote therapeutic client outcomes, which include enhancing and maintaining health, providing illness care, assisting in habilitation/rehabilitation, and comfort to the dying. This is accomplished through the steps of assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing, and evaluating activities with individuals and/or 7

8 groups when their self-care agency is inadequate to meet their therapeutic self-care demands. The practice of nursing takes place within the context of a therapeutic relationship. The scope of nursing practice includes teaching, research, and administration. Within this context, effective interpersonal and communication skills are essential components of nursing practice. Given current and emerging social, economic, and political trends, health teaching is essential to nursing s role in health promotion and maintenance. The discipline of nursing synthesizes theories and concepts from the natural and social sciences and the humanities into the practice of nursing. Nursing has the responsibility to continue to develop and expand the body of nursing knowledge through research such that client outcomes, nursing practice, and nursing education are enhanced. In addition, with the broadening scope and complexity of nursing practice, nursing must provide heightened leadership, management, and control of its own activities through a specified set of socially responsible standards of nursing practice. Nursing as a professional discipline must be accountable to itself as a professional discipline and to its consumers. Nursing Education - an organized process by which individuals are prepared to assume nursing practice roles and provide competent nursing assistance within the health-care delivery system. Nursing education should take place within institutions of higher learning. Instruction in the humanities, natural and behavioral sciences and nursing theories provides a foundation for the development of the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective skills necessary for the practice of nursing. Relative to the existence of various levels of nursing practice and the individual needs of the student, career mobility in nursing should be provided through different educational programs. To meet the health care needs of clients, individuals with diverse levels of education should be encouraged and assisted to maximize their potential in nursing practice. Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing- The bachelor s degree is the minimal educational preparation to practice as a generalist in professional nursing. The baccalaureate graduate uses the nursing process in providing and managing therapeutic nursing interventions to individuals, families, groups, and communities with common or uncommon health conditions, the outcomes of which may be predictable or unpredictable. The baccalaureate graduate analyzes the effects of research, legal, ethical, political, economic, and social processes on client outcomes, nursing practice and the health care delivery system. In addition, the baccalaureate graduate acts as a change agent and client advocate, using the principles of leadership and management when collaborating and consulting with other health care providers. Upon completion of the program, the baccalaureate graduate articulates a personal philosophy, which demonstrates commitment to continuous learning, excellence in practice, and promotion of the profession of nursing. Statement on Diversity- Recognizing the rapidly increasing diversity of the United States of America and of higher education, and in support of Norfolk State University s mission to educate an ethically and culturally diverse student body, the nursing faculty and staff of the Department of Nursing and Allied Health are committed to promoting an educational environment that values, respects and reflects diversity. Diversity includes consideration of socio-economic class, gender, age, religious belief, social orientation and disabilities, as well as race and ethnicity. Recognizing and valuing diversity also means acknowledgement, appreciation, and support of different learning styles, ways of interaction and teaching methodologies.
