Mission of the Lienhard School of Nursing
The Lienhard School of Nursing is dedicated to offering access and opportunity for qualified individuals of diverse backgrounds, talents, interests, experiences, cultures, and origins to pursue careers within the profession of nursing. As a School set within culturally diverse urban and suburban settings, the Lienhard School of Nursing through community partnerships fosters human growth and dignity and provides primary health care. Faithful to the Pace University motto, "Opportunitas," the School of Nursing is dedicated to and supports commitment to individuals, families, and communities at local, national, international and global levels to meet current and future health care needs. Essential qualities embodied in nursing education at the Lienhard School of Nursing include: the liberal arts and sciences as integral foundations; nursing theory, evidence-based practice, and research as the core body of knowledge; communication, critical thinking, cultural competence, and technological competence as essential skills; and moral and ethical decision making as values to provide society with professionally prepared nurse leaders. The School provides student-centered learning experiences that foster civic, social, and professional responsibility to embrace the challenges of the future. In keeping with our vision, our mission is to continue excellence in teaching, scholarship, practice, and service to prepare graduates to be nursing leaders in health care in the 21st century.
