5 INTRODUCTION Welcome to Southern Arkansas University s Nursing Program. We, the faculty, feel you have selected the most challenging, rewarding and versatile career available today. We believe that a Nurse is one who possesses considerable knowledge of the basic physical, biological, behavioral, and medical sciences, plus the ability and skill to apply this knowledge in caring for patients with common nursing problems. This requires decision-making ability and sound judgment. We dedicate our time and effort to offer you those experiences that will assist you in reaching this goal. SAU s academic nursing programs are rigorous, yet accessible to those willing to commit themselves to it. The learning experiences will be available; it is your responsibility to take advantage of them. SAU provides equal educational opportunities for all and this policy is fully implemented in all programs according to University guidelines. Revised: December 2006; August 2006, and May

6 Mission Statement The Department of Nursing at Southern Arkansas University supports the mission statement, goals, and objectives of the University. The Department of Nursing is committed to demonstrating our core values by providing students with opportunities for intellectual growth through cultivating compassion, communication, and skill development for career preparation in a global environment. We strive to meet regional health care needs by preparing graduates who demonstrate basic competency as health care providers. Core Values: Quality Professionalism Innovation Caring Philosophy of the Department of Nursing The Department of Nursing clearly differentiates two types of nursing programs. They are: Associate degree nursing education prepares the graduate to function as an entry level registered nurse providing direct evidence-based care to persons as individuals and members of family/groups in a structured and unstructured health care setting. Baccalaureate nursing education prepares the graduate for entry into professional practice as a generalist who provides evidence-based care for persons as individuals, members of family/groups, and as communities in both structured and unstructured health care settings. The complexity of decision-making and accountability increases in proportion to the complexity of the client, the health care setting, and the preparation of the practitioner. The different levels of nursing education imply education increases in complexity to correspond with the expected competencies of each graduate. PERSON Each person is a physiological, psychological, sociocultural, and spiritual being, and is therefore, unique and irreplaceable. The person is continually interacting and affected by the internal and external environment. Each person is dynamic and distinct, because they have unique and common basic human needs across the life span. The person within the context of individual, family/group, or community is the recipient of nursing care. ENVIRONMENT The environment consists of internal and external elements, which are in constant interaction with the person. The internal environment is composed of physiological, psychological, sociocultural, and spiritual factors, which influence the person from within. The external environment includes the physical and social elements that are external to and interactive with 7

7 the person. The internal and external environments interact to produce needs unique to each person. The process the person chooses to meet those needs changes the health of the person. HEALTH Health is a dynamic state influenced by personal choices occurring in and across all environments. The health of the person is dependent upon resources available within the internal and external environment. Through collaborative efforts, health is promoted, maintained, and/or restored until the end of life. NURSING Nursing is a scientific discipline that provides holistic care for culturally diverse persons across the life span. Nursing acknowledges the dignity, worth and the right of all persons to have their health care needs provided in and across all environments through the use of nursing/research process. The practice of nursing is based on knowledge, which incorporates critical thinking, communication, therapeutic nursing interventions, professionalism, roles, and service. NURSING EDUCATION Nursing education requires a foundation in liberal education, which provides an effective base of knowledge and cognitive skills upon which to build professional and personal growth. Nursing education within the university setting offers the opportunity to interact with students from diverse educational disciplines, which provides the individual an experience to build a broader foundation, thus shaping their practice of nursing. Nursing education is a life-long process that assists individuals in developing the potential to function productively within an ever changing health care system. The use of technological resources and innovative creative teaching strategies provides optimal learning experiences. Learning occurs when the student perceives it as relevant and the information received has concurrent application. Faculty facilitate, create, and guide learning opportunities, thus enabling individuals to seek and develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes to prepare them for practice within the nursing profession.

An individual who is absent from a class (not participating as outlined in course requirements) should contact the instructor. If a student does not contact the instructor or participate in an online or web-enhanced class for ten consecutive calendar days of instruction, the student may be administratively dropped from the class for excessive unexcused absences at the request of the instructor. If this occurs, a grade of WN (withdrawal for non-attendance under extenuating circumstances) or WF (withdrawal with failure) will be given for the course. Clinical learning experiences represent a commitment and responsibility to clients as well as essential application of knowledge. Students are expected to be present and on time for each clinical learning experience. Satisfactory demonstration of course requirements and clinical competency is necessary for successful completion of a course. Either an unsatisfactory grade or withdrawal from a course may be necessary for students who fail to complete required clinical hours and meet course objectives. A student s clinical area/unit of employment and/or wage earning job cannot count for clinical hours required in a nursing course. Clinical facilities reserve the right to ask students to participate in requirements that are mandatory by the institution and may require a fee. A student refusing to comply may be administratively withdrawn from the course.
