5 School of Nursing Mission The Kaplan School of Nursing programs prepare students to enter and advance in the nursing profession at many levels of practice, from basic to advanced, and enable graduates to develop and apply the knowledge, skills, and values gained from their education to serve effectively in whatever nursing roles and settings they choose. The Kaplan School of Nursing promotes nursing education focused on providing excellent care, serving as leaders, and being accountable and responsive to the ever-changing global health care climate. School of Nursing Philosophy The Kaplan School of Nursing programs are designed to enable individuals to combine nursing knowledge and values with skills and strategies that foster career success at all levels of nursing practice. Our faculty believes that our school s nursing programs will empower individuals to successfully meet the challenges of the health care communities they serve. Our programs are based on the belief that students grow through the application of liberal arts and nursing knowledge based on scientific principles and the development and use of critical-thinking skills. Our faculty believes nursing education requires a foundation in the physical sciences, social sciences, liberal arts, and nursing theory and research, as well as experiential learning. Nursing education should facilitate students in becoming capable of affirming themselves as whole beings physical, mental, and social and prepare them to respect and care for other persons. This education focuses on the preparation for nurses at different levels of practice, helping to increase the availability of nursing care for the growing population requiring health care in and across all settings. The nursing programs are also designed to prepare students to advance nursing contributions in the communities they serve and to participate in the growth of the profession. This model for nursing education emphasizes a foundation of understanding and ongoing learning, and guides students to pursue additional studies in nursing. Kaplan University s programs are designed to prepare graduates to pursue employment in their field of study, or in related fields. However, the University does not guarantee that graduates will be placed in any particular job, eligible for job advancement opportunities, or employed at all. Additional training or certification may be required. While many of Kaplan University s degree programs are designed to prepare graduates to pursue continued graduate- or doctoratelevel education, the University cannot guarantee that students will be granted admission to any graduate or doctoral programs
