    The philosophy of the nursing program of The University of Texas at El Paso College of Health Sciences is derived from the mission of the University. The mission of the nursing program is to prepare professional practitioners of nursing to care for the health needs of individuals, families, groups, and communities in society. Nursing has a major role in assuring that changing health needs of men and women are met.

    Objectives of the Undergraduate Nursing Program

    1. Provide professional nursing care to individuals, families, groups, and communities in various developmental states and from different sociocultural backgrounds.
    2. Use critical thinking and apply theories, principles, and concepts in making clinical judgements about the health care needs of individuals, families, and communities.
    3. Intervene to minimize or alleviate stressors: to reinforce positive adaptive behavior, to promote, maintain, and restore health, and to care for the ill, disabled, and terminally ill.
    4. Collaborate with other professionals, agency personnel, and consumers in planning, implementation, and evaluation of health care.
    5. Practice nursing within the framework of legal, ethical, moral, and professional standards.
    6. Use research findings in the care of clients/patients.
    7. Provide leadership within the nursing profession and in health affairs.
    8. Develop a lifetime commitment to intellectual inquiry, self-directed learning, and professional growth.
    9. Use undergraduate education as a basis for graduate study.
