Have you ever asked yourself what it means to care for people in today’s world? At the Seattle University College of Nursing, we recognize the challenge of providing health care in our diverse and changing global context and we are dedicated to educating outstanding nursing professionals who are equipped to meet this challenge with the unique contributions of nursing science and the integrated knowledge of other disciplines. Our educational community is guided by an overarching value for social justice, so we “walk the talk” in caring for vulnerable populations. From our homeless initiatives to working with developing countries, our students and faculty take learning outside the classroom and into people’s lives. Our focus is on caring for the whole person; we recognize that people are more than consumers who present a singularly defined physical problem; they are diverse individuals with complex histories and experiences. Our perspective aims to care for people by taking into consideration the families, institutions, communities, and culture that shape their lives. For this reason, at the College of Nursing we aim to develop nursing science and education through a holistic approach, with interdisciplinary collaboration from both the sciences and the arts. We have a strong focus on cultural competency and strive to ensure every student feels equipped to communicate effectively with patients from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. This concern for each individual is also reflected in our faculty-student relationships. We are a teaching university, so our professors teach and are actively involved in their students’ education and accessible to work with them one-on-one and provide excellent advising based on student needs. They also use advanced pedagogical methods that make nursing education meaningful to various types of students. At the same time, we have a strong emphasis on faculty research and scholarship. This faculty scholarship is linked to our mission of caring for the vulnerable and pursuing social justice, and we involve the students in this research and scholarship. Our student-centered learning leads to high quality patient-centered care. Our program is practical, with a strong focus on effective, compassionate communication and advocacy for the patient. Though we are small enough to give each student the attention they need, we also have the reputation and resources to make a real difference in the local and global community. Our students and faculty collaborate with a wide range of clinical community partners, both locally and internationally. While nursing science has historically tended toward a local focus, our desire is to position cutting edge nursing science within a global context in partnership with other healthcare disciplines. Our Global Committee has been a pioneering force at Seattle University in providing opportunities to dialogue about global health issues. Through our Global Nursing Education program we strive to prepare our students with the skills and knowledge to deal with global trends in health care disparity, vulnerability, and disease. And when it comes to technological resources, our clinical performance lab stands out as a cutting-edge facility that allows students to learn and practice their skills in a simulated hospital and clinical environment. I invite you to continue exploring our website and take a look at what the College of Nursing has to offer. I hope you will discover what I have here, a unique community of nursing professionals who are fulfilling the mission of educating for caring service and social justice.
