Louisiana College (Division of Nursing)




The Division of Nursing, as an integral part of the college, is in concert with its mission and purpose. The primary purpose of Louisiana College is to be a community of learning and free inquiry, which provides a basis for approaching knowledge and truth. A thorough and honest academic program from a Christian perspective stimulates both faculty and students to share content and to develop and apply their personal faith. Consistent with the college mission, the Division of Nursing emphasizes the preparation of nurses as leaders prepared to serve mankind through various professional approaches and to serve God through examined faith.

The professional nursing curriculum is built upon a foundation of education consistent with the beliefs about person, environment, health, nursing, and includes the process of teaching-learning within nursing education that is supportive of these beliefs. Students should acquire a foundation in the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences directed at individual and personal growth. This foundation is essential to the curriculum as it strengthens the depth and breadth of its development.

With the exception of one pre-nursing course, the nursing courses are at the upper division level and consist of both theoretical content and clinical nursing practice. The theoretical component of the nursing curriculum incorporates theories and principles from the related sciences as well as content unique to nursing. The content is organized, integrated and synthesized to facilitate comprehensive understanding of total life processes along the wellness to illness continuum.

The purpose of the Division of Nursing is; (1) to educate, from a Christian perspective, a professional nurse to practice within a caring context, (2) to prepare a nurse generalist to assume nursing positions in a variety of health care settings, and (3) to prepare the professional nurse for graduate and continuing education.
