PHILOSOPHY


We believe that the world is one family and education is the right of every child of this country and any level of education should equip the student to be able to gain fruitful employment and also provide an opportunity to continue education whenever possible.

We believe that nursing education must occur in a natural setting that is the clinical and the community setup.

We also believe that education should be flexible enough to promote vertical and horizontal growth and mobility.

We believe that the nurse educators responsibility lies in providing the right experiences to the student and allowing the students to explore and learn while enjoying her learning experience.
