Cumberland Creed


Academic honesty is essential to effective learning.  Therefore, we as seekers of knowledge hold these as our core values: personal integrity, individual worth, independent thinking, discipline, community responsibility. (See Cumberland University Student Handbook)

 

Professional values and behaviors are foundational to the practice of nursing. Caring is a key core value which has contributed to the public’s respect for professional nursing practice.  Inherent in professional practice is an understanding of the historical, legal, and contemporary context of nursing practice. Professionalism is defined as the regular demonstration of core values evidenced by nurses working with other professionals to achieve optimal health and wellness outcomes in patients, families and communities by wisely applying principles of altruism, excellence, caring, ethics, respect, communication and accountability (Inter professional Professionalism Measurement Group, 2008). Professionalism also involves accountability for one’s self and nursing practice, including continuous professional engagement and lifelong learning (The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice, American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2009). www.aacn.nche.edu
