4. Message from the Dean
1). The Mervyn M. Dymally School of Nursing (MMDSON) is dedicated to enhancement of diversity among future nursing professionals. Its vision is to create a learning environment that contributes to “excellent nursing care for all in a world without health disparities.” The principle of social justice is centered into the traditional paradigm of patient-nurse-health- environment. The school’s conceptual model of practice reflects a holistic approach utilizing a framework based on a modified Roy Adaptation Model. The Roy Model four modes and their sub-components are key in the assessment of clients within the nursing process. The four modes assure a holistic nursing practice by addressing not only the physiological needs but also the psycho-social needs by including the self-concept (self-esteem, physical self, personal self), role function (obligations to self and others) and interdependence (support systems) modes.
2). The curriculum emphasizes the health status of underserved communities for the purpose of enabling graduates to provide evidence-based nursing care honoring the dignity of our clients with respect and compassion. Whether the student is starting the nursing degree or advancing their nursing practice, Mervyn M. Dymally School of Nursing provides a supportive framework to develop the skills to care for people in our urban communities. The nursing programs offer strategies to develop skills to care for people across the lifespan from neonatal to geriatric care. Each nursing program provides a strong foundation for future doctoral studies, career advancement, and the development of strong ethical and leadership qualities.

Personal Goal Statement
Personal Goal Statement
Since I was young, I have always admired to live in a community surrounded by happy families. As I grew up, and realized that a happy family is a healthy family and it dawned on me that a healthy family would not exist if there are no determined and enthusiastic FNPs. This was the beginning of the conceptualization of my career as an FNP. I began to develop the interest in becoming an FNP and even went ahead to inquire what it would take me achieve my career dream. My high school teacher advised me to be keen on science subjects, helped me obtain good the science subjects and secured a slot to do BSN in the university where I studied clinical training in family medicine. The course has helped me develop patience, good communication skills, how to be calm and the ability to treat every member of a family with humility.
