About Our Program
Nursing Class Nursing Class

Philosophy & Mission:

The nursing faculty subscribes to the stated mission, vision, guiding principles, and student learning outcomes for student success of WWCC and WWCC Nursing Program. We believe in the intrinsic value and worth of every person. We believe that health is a state of homeostasis influenced by forces impacting on the person. Nursing is a practice-oriented discipline that uses evidenced-based knowledge derived from the biological, physical, and behavioral sciences to provide safe and humanistic care to persons, families, groups, and communities. The art and science of nursing is the nucleus of the interdisciplinary health care system. We believe the goal of nursing is to use the nursing process and clinical judgement to promote and maintain health, prevent disease and disability, care for and rehabilitate the sick, and support the dying. Nursing education must have a strong clinical focus and allow opportunity to apply the theoretical component of nursing. Read More...
