Department of Nursing

The philosophy and conceptual framework of the bachelor’s degree in Nursing at the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton are in accordance with the basic beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church concerning education and health. The concepts identified in this philosophy are God, Man, Society, Health, Nursing, Christian Witnessing, teaching/Learning and Professional Nursing roles. God, the Supreme Being, created man to be a reflection of His being, including His character. Health, or high-level wellness, is “wholeness” as an outcome of following the physical, mental, social and spiritual laws of the universe. Nursing is an applied science which regardless of social or ethnic backgrounds assists man in his attempt to obtain and maintain health at an optimal level.As nurse educators, we value the importance of a nurse being proficient in knowledge, attitudes and skills.Students are considered as responsible adult learners, with knowledge based on previous life experiences. They are viewed as equal partners in the learning process and, as such will be encouraged to take responsibility for their own personal and professional development. By virtue of the theory and practical experience in education and research available to students, they are prepared to instruct others on nursing knowledge, attitudes and skills which they have developed. They graduate as both health team members and leaders within the health care systems of their regions.
