Philosophy

  • The Morton College Nursing Program believes that the education of prelicensure nurses is accomplished through an understanding of the needs of the adult learner and by applying the principles of evidence-based teaching practices. To achieve this, the faculty and students are dedicated to creating educational experiences that encompass: 

    • Caring and compassion
    • Ethics and integrity
    • Diversity
    • Human dignity and social justice
    • Inquiry and critical thinking
    • Communication and collaboration
    • Accountability and responsibility
    • Life-long learning

    • Evidence-based best practices
    • Safety and quality improvement
    • Informatics and technology
    • Advocacy
    • Communication and collaboration
