BSN Program Details
To meet the needs of society, the Christian nurse must learn to apply both Scriptural and scientific methods to nursing services rendered to individuals, families, and communities. The accomplishment of this dual goal encompasses biblical concepts about the relationships between God and man, man and fellow man, and man and the physical universe.
Man is a unique being. Although man is a biological, psychological, and social person, he is also a spiritual being, created in the image of God. He needs to be reconciled to God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the true source and sustainer of life, physical and eternal. Man, therefore, needs spiritual as well as physical and psychological nurturing and guidance.
The College nursing program is developed around the theme of nursing as an expression of God’s love through service to man. The faculty is dedicated to inculcating in Christian young people Christian faith and values as they relate to the art and science of nursing. The empirical ramifications of such nursing responsibilities as comforting, strengthening, educating, maintaining, and motivating are explored in depth.
The nursing department subscribes to the educational philosophy of PCC, which is based on the tenet that traditional education is foundational. We believe that a practical approach is congruent with traditional education and that each student should be provided with a maximum of practical experience in his field of study.
The nursing department strives to prepare nurses who can function with a high degree of autonomy in a variety of situations throughout the world. Furthermore, the program is designed to anticipate increased diversity in nursing practice and career patterns. Therefore, the curriculum includes a focus on the development of clinical leadership skills and an opportunity for concentrated study in an area of clinical interest.
Nursing as taught at Pensacola Christian College meets all the requirements of the institution for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. The curriculum offers basic preparation in all the major areas of nursing with opportunities for concentrated study in an area of interest. The Pensacola Christian College nursing program is approved by the Florida State Board of Nursing.
