The Weimar Institute Nursing (WIN) Department prepares students from diverse communities to be competent Registered Nurses, committed to the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ who came to this world as the unwearied servant of humankind’s physical, mental, and spiritual necessity.

The philosophy of the Nursing Department is consistent with Seventh-day Adventist beliefs and is based in Biblical teachings and the inspired works of Ellen G. White—especially the books dedicated to nurses and physicians entitled Ministry of Healing (1905) and Medical Ministry. These books are considered sources of spiritual inspiration and guidance for many healthcare providers.

The Nursing Department exists to support the college’s Seventh-day Adventist mission of service: “To Heal a Hurting World”. The Nursing Program’s vision statement is a specific extension of Weimar Institute’s commitment expressed in the academic bulletin.

The Nursing Program’s philosophy is based upon three main constructs, which are continuing themes of each course:

  • The demonstration of the compassionate ministry of Jesus Christ toward all persons
  • Health Promotion for the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) across the lifespan.
  • Evidence-based nursing process approach (Assessment, Analysis, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation)
