The faculty believes that health must be considered in its broadest, holistic sense and it depends on a balance of physical, Psychological, sociological, cultural, developmental and spiritual factors.

Nursing
The faculty believes that the professional nurse should be equipped with the knowledge, skill and attitude to render comprehensive nursing care so as to promote the health of individual, family and community and to work autonomously and collaboratively with the other member of the health team. While ensuring the welfare of public, the nurse also has the added responsibility to enhance the welfare of nursing profession.
