Philosophy And Objectives Of The Practical Nursing Program

The faculty of Vocational Education and Extension Board’s Practical Nursing Program believes a democratic society is composed of diverse, multi-cultural individuals, who have in common the basic physiological and psychosocial needs, described by Abraham Maslow. Each person is a unique individual with dignity and worth. As individuals progress through the life cycle, they are responsible for making decisions about their health and welfare. It is a function of social institutions to respect individual differences, to support individual rights and freedoms, and to promote individual growth and development.

Nursing is an art and a science, which is learned. Its essence is embedded in human caring. Nursing is practiced according to an organized, systematic process, which addresses the health care needs of individuals, their families and their communities. The nursing plan of care acknowledges powerful environmental or social forces, which influence the self-actualization of individuals. Nursing activities are designed to help individuals maintain wellness, cope with illness or die a peaceful death. The practical nurse is a valuable member of the health care team and practices under the supervision of a physician or registered nurse. The practical nurse uses the nursing process and performs general nursing duties, which meet basic health care needs in a variety of health care settings.

The teaching/learning process is based on a collaborative relationship, which focuses on the learner’s needs and past experiences. The teacher serves as a model of caring behaviors and has professional responsibility to facilitate self-direction. Successful nursing education requires a good basic educational foundation and is dependent upon skillful guidance in learning the necessary body of knowledge. The practical nursing curriculum provides a base for higher education and fosters the concept of career mobility. The faculty believes participation in continuing education demonstrates a commitment to lifelong learning and is a necessary ingredient for nursing excellence.
