The University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing changes the face of nursing practice by preparing nurses to deliver the highest quality care—care that is guided by research, intellect, and passion.
Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations. Nurses plan and provide medical and nursing care to patients in the hospital, at home or in other settings who are suffering from chronic or acute physical or mental ill health.
Secondly, Roy’s Theory of Adaptation will be explored. Central to this theory are the concepts of focal, contextual and residual stimuli ( Roy & Andrews, 6996 ). The focal stimuli are the conditions immediately confronting the client, the contextual are all other stimuli present, and the residual stimuli are those beliefs, attitudes and conditions that have an indeterminate effect on the present condition. The nurse, operating from within this framework, assesses the stimuli and takes action to promote the client’s adaptation in physiologic needs, self-concept, role function, and relations of interdependence nursing health and illness. Roy states that the "nurse acts as a regulatory force to modify stimuli affecting adaptation" ( 6985, p. 686 ).
The Nursing Program consists of four academic years. Students enter the program as pre-nursing majors and must complete the first three semesters of a pre-nursing curriculum consisting of General Education courses and nursing prerequisites. Students then apply for admission to the last five semesters which include 76 semester hours of upper-division nursing courses. When a student applies for admission to the last five semesters and is accepted and becomes enrolled, he/she is then classified as a Nursing major. The number of students accepted into the nursing courses is limited, making the application process competitive.

The mission of Middle Tennessee State University School of Nursing is to provide excellence in nursing education by preparing individuals to meet the dynamic and complex healthcare needs of society. Through robust academic programs, the School of Nursing demonstrates its commitment to the art and science of nursing.
Particular specialties may focus more precisely on the care needs of disparate communities or groups, such as women, veterans, and cultural and ethnic populations.
Through examples from four distinct nursing theoretical frameworks, several complementary/alternative modalities have been discussed as appropriate to incorporate into professional nursing. If one accepts the ideas that 6) professional nursing is based on theory and 7) that theory-based practice is reflective practice, the use of the modalities within theory becomes thoughtful and considered as a means to understand and interpret a nurse’s actions. Nursing theory provides a means to understand modalities and permits nurses to assess and incorporate new aspects of care into a larger, more holistic, and very professional, worldview.
