Mission of the School of Nursing

The mission of the SUNY Delhi School of Nursing is to engage students in an innovative, caring, and collaborative learning environment. In preparation for interdisciplinary nursing practice and leadership roles, the School of Nursing provides opportunities to progress through undergraduate and graduate levels of education. The School prepares graduates to effectively respond to the needs of a dynamic, complex, and diverse healthcare community.

Philosophy

The foundation of our school's philosophy is the constructivist theory in which:

  • The learner is an individual who makes decisions about his or her educational needs through active engagement in the learning process
  • The teaching methods support students' self-directedness in the educational process
  • Learning is a lifelong dynamic process involving interactions among the learner, teacher, and environment. The interactions are designed to provide the opportunity for each learner to advance toward professional goals
