1 During the Fall Semester of 2008, a total of 204 new students (first-time and transfer) entered the College. After 6 years (as of August 1, 2014), 72% of those students had graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from MCCN.

2 Because it is not within the institution’s mission to provide preparation for student transfer to another institution, MCCN does not track or report transfer-out data.

Nursing Philosophy

Mount Carmel College of Nursing provides educational programs in a Judeo-Christian environment which enhances the unique intellectual, moral, spiritual, and psychosocial development of the person. The faculty accept responsibility to prepare professional nurses for theory based practice at the basic and advanced levels that reflects the values and standards of the profession.

Caring is integral to nursing, valuing the dignity and worth of persons, service to others, social justice, altruism, autonomy, and integrity. Nursing is the practice of caring behaviors founded upon the integration of general education and professional studies. Nursing involves the management of health care of individuals, families, communities, and populations. The nurse is a health care professional who enacts multifaceted roles to promote optimal health during all life experiences. Nurses work collaboratively with clients and multidisciplinary teams to design, provide, coordinate, and implement health care. They respond to the diverse and changing needs of society in the local community as well as the broader global community.

Nurses are both knowledgeable and active in political, economic, and regulatory processes that influence health care practices. Health involves the harmonious integration of all dimensions of the client; it is culturally defined, valued, and practiced. Health is a dynamic, lifelong, multidimensional process whether the client is an individual, family, community, or population. Changes in health status occur in response to the stressors and strengths of the internal and external environment. The nurse provides holistic caring interventions directed at assisting the client to promote health.

Baccalaureate nursing education provides the foundation for professional nursing practice. Through a collaborative and interactive process, the self-directed learner develops the skills of critical thinking, effective communication, holistic assessment, caregiving, and leadership for professional practice. Clinical practice, which is the essence of nursing, is augmented through nursing theory and research. Baccalaureate nursing education encourages lifelong inquiry for professional development.

Graduate nursing education provides the foundation for specialized roles in education and clinical practice. Research, theory for advanced practice, and strategies for validating and utilizing research findings are integral to graduate study.

Teaching Philosophy

The faculty at Mount Carmel College of Nursing believe that teaching-learning is a dynamic, interactive sharing of knowledge that stimulates lifelong learning for both learner and educator.

We believe that both learners and faculty are responsible for a collaborative teaching-learning process. Students are responsible for engaging in learning opportunities while faculty are responsible for providing innovative nursing education based on theory and evidence. As faculty we pledge to maintain our expertise and to promote nursing knowledge.

We strive to create an intellectually challenging learning environment where faculty role model professional education and nursing standards. We believe in developing caring relationships with students that promote personal, academic and professional growth.

We believe in developing the learner to his/her greatest potential through growth of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are hallmarks of the professional nurse.
