6 I. General Information The Lenoir-Rhyne School of Nursing adheres to the general academic policies outlined in the graduate school section of the Lenoir-Rhyne University Catalog unless indicated in the School of Nursing Graduate Student Handbook. All graduate students in the nursing program are responsible for reading and understanding the information presented in this handbook as well as the applicable policies from the university catalog. Any questions should be addressed to the Director of the MSN program or the Chair of the School of Nursing. It is strongly recommended that students download and keep a copy of the handbook. 6

7 Philosophy of the Lenoir-Rhyne University School of Nursing The faculty in the School of Nursing fully ascribe to the following beliefs: Clients can be individuals, families, and communities. Individual clients are wholistic beings who come from diverse backgrounds each with a unique perspective and possess intrinsic dignity and worth. All types of clients participate in decisions about their own health care. The environment is a global one encompassing socio-cultural, physical, economic and political components. The nurse and clients influence and are influenced by these components as they work with other members of the health care team toward health goals. Health is a dynamic state which includes both biophysical and psychosocial aspects. The client s maximum potential for daily living can be achieved within a healthy state. The client is at the center of all health care relationships. Professional nursing arises from and is best organized and delivered through a caring model. The caring process is manifested as nurses collaborate with others as an integral part of the healthcare team to plan, design, manage, coordinate, and provide for clients. The professional nurse empowers clients to maximize their potential for daily living through health promotion and risk reduction. Professional nurses use research, clinical judgment, and leadership skills to enhance the quality of care for all to further the profession of nursing. Education is an interactive process in which learners share responsibility with the faculty for the acquisition of knowledge, development of skills, and enhancement of the capacity for decision making in both current and future environments. Both students and faculty progress in critical thinking, scholarship, leadership, responsibility, and caring as they engage in this life-long self-directed process. The faculty believes that learning is best promoted through the use of a conceptual framework which allows learners to categorize, organize, and use new information as it is acquired. Revised 5/09 7

21 the student being removed from the agency for the learning experience. The student may be placed in a different agency, if an agency is available and can result in the student being delayed in meeting the course requirements. Students who have concerns regarding their immunization status and agency placement should speak with the Director of the MSN Program or the Chair of the School of Nursing prior to a course requiring placement in a clinical agency. CPR Requirements Students are required to maintain CPR certification while enrolled in the School of Nursing. Certification is to be for the Health Care Provider by the American Heart Association.
