The philosophy of the School of Nursing is consistent with Trinity Western University’s view that the educational experience should cultivate knowledge and personal development to glorify God and to serve humankind. The liberal arts foundation supports holistic student development. Core courses in science, art, philosophy, language, religion, and society and culture encourage students to think Biblically, critically, ethically, and creatively about the world. We believe that it is not enough to simply engage students in the realm of ideas but that the educational experience should facilitate ongoing personal transformation, the goal being a fully integrated, holistic being capable of loving God and others as oneself. This concern for personal transformation is central to providing excellent care for clients, and will ultimately have a transformative impact on culture. Nursing courses prepare students to work in partnership with individuals, families, groups, and communities for the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health. A focus on culture, diversity, and social justice prepares students to engage in the profession of nursing from an ethically sensitive perspective.
