Millions of people all over the world lack proper health care. Union College is making a difference for some of those people every year through their frontier nursing trip.
The Union College Division of Nursing builds on the concept that human beings are created in the image of God who gave them individuality, autonomy, a capacity for intelligent choice and adaptive mechanisms to deal with change. Exercising the right of self-determination, human beings chose a course contrary to the principles that promote well-being, consequently forfeiting health in all dimensions. The goal of the nurse is to assist clients to achieve high-level wellness.
A broad base in the humanities, natural, social and nursing sciences provides the student with a solid foundation required to carry out the mission of the nursing program, which is to prepare students from diverse backgrounds to be competent, caring generalists in the profession of nursing. The program is based on professional standards and reflects a commitment to wholeness, Christian service and Seventh-day Adventist values.
