We are so excited to hear more about GGC and all of the activities that they are doing! Take a look at all of the pictures and get to know a little more about GGC's nursing program. GANS is also proud to have several board members from GGC representing their wonderful program.

  • Prepares leaders to manage care and promote positive transformations for the health of individuals, families, groups, communities, populations, systems and for nursing practices;

  • Nurtures an emphasis of caring that guides and transforms the practice of nursing toward improved health;

  • Encourages nurses who assist individuals in achieving a positive state of being that includes all dimensions of life and employs patient-centered focus of care;

  • Develops nurses who function collaboratively and autonomously within professional standards and engage in self-reflection, self-regulation and commitment to professional development;

  • Emphasizes concepts, creativity and critical thinking as tools to create new knowledge and solve problems – both intraprofessionally and interdisciplinarily; and

  • Invites faculty who view themselves as collaborators, directors of learning and role models for the evolving nurse and support students’ self-development as nursing professionals prepared for 21st century global health care needs.
