The philosophy of
Sikkim Government College of Nursing developed by the faculty in congruent with
the philosophy of Indian nursing council believes that every individual is a
unique and multidimensional being with inherent worth, dignity and a right to
influence his/ her destiny. Human beings are integrated beings consisting of
biological, psychosocial, cognitive and spiritual aspects and each individual
has the right to participate in making decisions which will affect health.
Health is a dynamic state influenced by heredity, the environment and the individual’s lifestyle. Indian Nursing Council believes that, Health is a state of well-being that enables a person to lead a psychologically, socially and economically productive life. The state of health is reflected within an individual’s physical, psychological, spiritual, developmental and socio-cultural dimensions. Individual, families and communities differ in how health is perceived and valued, and have the right to define their own health. The pursuit of health is the right and responsibility of each individual.
We believe that
nursing is a dynamic, therapeutic and educational process in meeting the health
needs of the individual, family and community. Scope of nursing practice
encompasses provision of preventive, promotive, curative and rehabilitative
aspect of care to the people across their life span in any health care
setting. Nursing contributes to the health services in a vital and
significant way in the health care delivery system. It organizes national
health goals and is committed to participate in the implementation of National
