Philosophy and Mission Statement


The Department of Nursing is an integral component of the University of Tampa and as such embraces the University's commitment to the development of each student to become a productive and responsible citizen, to ensure that students balance "learning by thinking" with "learning by doing."


The primary mission of the Department of Nursing is to offer programs of study in nursing science at the baccalaureate and master's level that prepare graduates as generalists in professional nursing, as nurse practitioners, and as leaders/managers for diverse healthcare settings. The Department of Nursing shares the commitment of the College of Natural and Health Sciences and the University to teaching, research and service; preparing each student as a life-long learner and as a health professional providing quality and compassionate health care to the citizens of Florida, the nation and the global community.
