Mission and Values
Mission Statement of the Centre of Nurse Education
The staff of the Mercy University Hospital (MUH) Centre of Nurse Education (CNE) are committed to providing high quality, accessible education to all its stakeholders within the MUH CNE's defined geographical remit. We view education as a shared undertaking with teaching staff as facilitators and learners as active participants in their professional development.
Learning is a life-long process which enables individuals to think critically in the appraisal and application of knowledge, skills and values as these relate to self, others and the environment. We seek to excel in the field of education, ensuring that our programmes are accredited, progressive and empowering. This philosophy guides our values set out below.
We seek to empathise and listen to our participants and stakeholders as we try to understand their educational needs.
We provide first-class accredited educational programmes based on best available evidence to assist nurses and other healthcare workers to develop their knowledge, skills and competence to enable them to deliver safe patient / client care in a rapidly changing environment.
We adhere to honesty, integrity and fairness in all that we do. We strive to act at all times with complete integrity and transparency.
Each person is respected as a unique and valued individual. We respect and value each person's contribution, through trust, courtesy and collaboration.
The team in the Centre of Nurse Education work together to achieve our common purpose of excellence in education.
We continuously strive for enhancement in the education and services we provide by working in partnership with stakeholders which contributes to the provision of effective, inclusive, high-quality, evidence-based care.
The CNE's role is the provision of continuing professional education, training and development enabling registered nurses and other health care personnel working in public and private health care settings to maintain and develop their knowledge, skills and competence.
