The Philippine Christian University, a church-related institution endeavors to provide an education with the three-fold emphasis: Faith, Character and Service.
The Mary Johnston College of Nursing, being an integral part of PCU, functions within its vision and mission in providing education to the students.
WE BELIEVE THAT:
- MAN is a unique being with dignity and worth, created by God – his center. He goes through life in a predictable sequence in continuous adaptation to a changing environment as an integral whole.
- HEALTH is a basic human right and a responsibility of both the individual and the state.
- NURSING is a dynamic discipline, which is an art, and a science of caring for individuals, families, and communities geared towards promotion and restoration of health, prevention of and recovery from illness, and support and comfort when death is inevitable. As man’s needs vary in response to the many changes taking place in his society, nursing is likewise modified to meet his changing requirements. It utilizes scientific principles and interpersonal tools, which may be carried out independently or in coordination with other members of the health team.
- THE STUDENT is a person with distinct capabilities and level of maturity. He / She learns best when provided with related learning experiences for observing and applying concepts learned in the classroom, as well as for synthesizing new concepts.
