Nursing is primarily a practice based discipline, which values human beings. At its best it enables people to reach and maintain their health and social goals in order to achieve their optimum quality of life. Nursing is founded on the premise that human beings have dignity, are worthy of respect and have individual rights, responsibilities, needs and beliefs. However, nursing is not confined to boundaries of alleviating sickness and suffering but is also concerned with the whole person and the promotion of health and wellness in individuals. Students assess the needs of patients and their families and manage care whilst being alert to changes in their condition; the degree aims to provide students at the point of registration with the knowledge, expertise and competence required of qualified practitioners.
