Mission

The faculty of the Division of Nursing of Davis & Elkins College supports the beliefs and general purposes of the College. The mission of the Division of Nursing is in concert with the College’s mission “To prepare and inspire students for success and for thoughtful engagement in the world.” The mission of the Division of Nursing is to provide its students with a personalized quality education designed to prepare its graduates to practice as registered nurses and to provide a foundation for lifelong learning and future professional development.

Philosophy

The Davis & Elkins College nursing faculty ascribes to the core competencies for nursing and nursing education identified by the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN). While firmly based in science and the arts, the essence of nursing is caring and compassionate patient centered care. Ethical standards, respect for individual dignity, and consideration of cultural context are implicit in the practice of patient-centered care. The nurse advocates for patients and families in ways that promote self-determination, integrity, and ongoing growth as human beings. Nursing care is provided in collaboration with the patient, the family and members of the health care team. The nurse displays a spirit of inquiry by examining evidence to improve quality of care, promote safety and improve patient outcomes. Nursing judgment is integral to making competent decisions related to the provision of safe and effective nursing care. Information essential to nursing care is communicated via a variety of technological and human means. The adoption of these key philosophical components fosters the development of the nurse’s professional identity.

“I obtained both my Associate’s and my Bachelor’s in Nursing from D&E. Being a non-traditional student and going back to school for my second career was challenging. Having attended courses at other institutions, I was impressed by the quality and commitment of the nursing professors to teach and mentor their students. There was not one time when any of them would not drop what they were doing to assist a student. The high expectations and requirements of the program guarantee that each student is receiving a solid nursing foundation.” – David Gidley, BSN, RN & Senior Charge Nurse, Emergency Department, Class of 2012​
