Our Conceptual Model

Our Conceptual Model depicts the interactive relationships of our core concepts: caring, collaboration, critical reflection, professionalism, and lifelong learning.These concepts provide the core beliefs of students and faculty in the metaparadigm of healthcare and guide professional excellence. As the learners advance in education and practice, they integrate and utilize these concepts within the metaparadigm of person (people), environment (health care system), health, and nursing/practice.Incorporating the effective use of Technology, Evidenced Based Principles, Research and Innovation creates a caring transformational environment that promotes the development of professional practice in wellness and health care, health information management, and nursing.
