Philosophy of the College

The philosophy of college of nursing is consistent with the Hawler Medical University and with the goals of Kurdistan Government. The college philosophy focuses on the nature of the person, environment, health, and the professional of nursing and the process of education.

Faculty believes that the "person" is a unique and continuously evolving being of dignity and growth. The person's behaviors reflect the interaction between personal and environmental influences. Each person has the right to participate in making decisions which affect health and to accept or refuse health care within the context of safety to society.

The Faculty view "environment" as all external influences affecting the life and development of the person. The health of individuals, families and communities is affected by these influences.

"Health" is viewed as a dynamic state arising from continuous change in the person and environment. Nursing is the diagnosis and treatment of actual or potential health problems.

Nursing involves supportive and therapeutic interventions based on theoretical and scientific knowledge. The goal of nursing is to promote health throughout life span, prevent illness, restore & or maintain with dignity essential life functions altered by illness. As health care professionals, nurses exert leadership to achieve a viable system of health care delivery independently and in collaboration with others, assess, plans, implements and evaluate nursing care. Nursing is a synthesis of art and science. The art of nursing requires that the practitioner apply knowledge gained from the humanities, arts and sciences to understand human needs.

Education for professional nursing practice includes a sound theoretical knowledge base to support experiential learning. The intent of the educational programmes is to focus on the learner.
