The mission of Kramer School of Nursing is to provide unique education and service opportunities that prepare professional nurses who practice with integrity, knowledge, and compassion while positively impacting the health care needs of diverse communities.

PHILOSOPHY

We, the faculty of Kramer School of Nursing, believe:

As faculty of a faith-based institution of higher education, the education of individuals for the profession of nursing is a calling with spiritual implications that leads to a deeper commitment, higher goals, a pursuit of excellence, and service to others. We believe that our obligation is to produce professionals who are skilled clinically, who can think critically, and who are ethically and legally accountable for their actions. We believe that both faculty and students must be culturally competent and sensitive to the range of beliefs they will encounter among those with whom they have professional interaction. We aspire to treat each member of our student body as an individual with distinct needs for fostering his or her success and welfare. We provide our graduates a foundation for the acquisition of the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary for success and leadership in nursing. We strive to provide well-rounded clinical experiences caring for clients throughout the life span. Graduates are prepared to function within the global community and to employ the fruits of their education to improve their communities.
