Philosophy

The faculty of College of Nursing Little Flower , Angamaly believes that ;

Education is an ongoing process promoting the development of the total person in intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects. The outcome of value-oriented education is an individual secure in his/her own identity with mature values and a strong sense of responsibility.

Teaching/learning is a continuous and interactive process with students and faculty, sharing joint responsibility. Faculty members provide information, resources, and guidance to facilitate learning; however, students must assume primary responsibility for their own learning.

Students are adults with prior knowledge and experiences and they differ in learning styles and needs; therefore, a variety of instructional strategies and support services are used to promote student achievement and success.

The core of learning is change. A change in perception, thinking, feeling, and action is demonstrated through behavior. The teacher is seen as a facilitator who assists learners in the process of discovery. The learning process promotes the development of personal reflection, intellectual inquiry, and sound judgment.

Collaboration with other disciplines, leadership, understanding and developments of nursing theory, research, publishing, preparation of nursing faculty, and the development of independent practitioners are emphasized.
