Nursing Program

Department of Nursing Mission

The mission of the Department of Nursing is consistent with the mission and objectives of Mt. San Antonio College, which is committed to providing quality education, services, and workforce training so that students become productive members of a diverse, sustainable, global society.

The faculties of the Department of Nursing, as well as the College, prepare students for lifelong learning by providing an engaging and supportive teaching and learning environment for students of diverse origins, experiences, needs, abilities, and goals. The educational process used in the nursing curriculum prepares adults to be responsible for personal attainment of objectives at mastery level through the use of pedagogical methods, which address a variety of learning styles. Faculty believe that given appropriate time, instruction, feedback, and practice, mastery will be achieved. Graduates of the Mt. San Antonio College Associate Degree Nursing Program possess the clinical knowledge, skills, and attitudes to function as Registered Nurses as well as to improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems within which they work.
