|Philosophy of Nursing Education|
A person is a unique bio-psycho-socio-cultural and spiritual being, always in constant interaction with the environment. These interactions affect individuals, families, population groups, and societal health status.
The nurse assumes the caring role in the promotion of health, prevention of diseases, restoration of health, alleviation of suffering, and, when recovery is not possible, assisting patients towards peaceful death. The nurse collaborates with other members of the health team and other sectors to achieve quality healthcare.
