We are dedicated to preparing outstanding professional nurses committed to excellence and innovation in the delivery and management of evidence-based heath care, through creative, collaborative, and culturally focused educational program.
Our educational effort is directed to providing a high quality, student-centered program of instruction for preparing superb baccalaureate generalist nurses and future leaders in the profession.
We develop and facilitate lifelong learning regarding nursing practice in health and illness, with an emphasis on patient-centered care across the life span, evidence-based practice informatics, patient safety, inter-disciplinary collaboration, critical thinking, quality improvement, genetics, cultural sensitivity and professionalism.
Everest College of Nursing program is based on the belief that individuals are holistic beings with unique physiological, sociocultural, and spiritual qualities. Individuals continually interact with the environment, thereby learning and adapting to achieve optimum health. With a strong base in liberal arts educations, baccalaureate nurses will develop necessary skills for leadership and collaboration with members of the health care team to provide safe, high-quality, patient, patient-centered care.
We believe in educating students for diverse and changing roles as clinicians, teachers, researchers, and leaders. With emphasis placed on classroom and experiential learning, students will have the knowledge to provide safe and excellent nursing care by applying their clinical skills, leadership concepts, decision making skills, and quest for quality improvement. Responsibility for health/illness care is shared mutually by providers and patients. Health attainment, maintenance, restoration, and quality care are rights of all individuals regardless of race, religious beliefs, nationality, social, or financial status.
We advance nursing practice and science in our ever-changing complex healthcare environment by applying across the lifespan. Our intent ultimately is not only to improve the health of our community, but also the health of the global community.
