ADN Program Details
The purpose of the Associate Degree Nursing Program at Lake-Sumter Community College is to provide excellent student centered academic and career oriented education in nursing that is proactive, accessible, and responsive to our community needs. The college provides the self-motivated student with education opportunities to become a lifelong learner.
The Associate of Science Degree nursing curriculum at LSCC draws from the Client Needs Framework which provides a universal structure for defining nursing actions and competencies to clients throughout the life span.
Health is a dynamic state which man pursues throughout life in response to physiological and psychosocial/cultural needs attainment.
Man is seen as an open system growing and developing through the life span, and is influenced by the changing state of the environment.
Nursing is an applied process, utilizing arts and sciences while collaborating with the client and members of the health team to meet client needs and promote health. Throughout man’s life span, certain needs become dominant concerns. Nursing endeavors to assist clients to recognize and meet these needs as they strive for a healthy lifestyle.
The role of nursing encompasses specific competencies necessary for the delivery of safe and effective care. These competencies are dependent upon critical thinking and analytical decision making supported by scientific knowledge and evidence based practice. These competencies further include adept application of psychomotor skills, demonstration of psychosocial integrity, and management of client care through communication and collaboration. The nurse is accountable to the clients and includes the client in decision making.
