Division of Nursing

About the nursing program at Union College

The Union College Division of Nursing builds on the concept that human beings are created in the image of God who gave them individuality, autonomy, a capacity for intelligent choice and adaptive mechanisms to deal with change. Exercising the right of self-determination, humans chose a course contrary to the principles that promote well-being, consequently forfeiting health in all dimensions. The goal of nurses is to assist clients in achieving high-level wellness.

A broad base in the humanities, natural, social and nursing sciences provides students with the solid foundation. Our mission is to prepare students from diverse backgrounds to be competent, caring generalists in the profession of nursing. The nursing program is based on professional standards and reflects a commitment to wholeness, Christian service and Seventh-day Adventist values.
