PHILOSOPHY OF NURSING
The faculty of Felbry College-School of Nursing believes that each person is an individual characterized by the physiological, psychosocial, cultural, spiritual, and physical components. These components are maintained in homeostasis by an internal mechanism in which a state of health is maintained. However, the person is in constant interaction with his physical environment to maintain life, health, and wellness; including interactions with others, family, and community. These interactions sometimes disturb the homeostasis; when this balance is disturbed, health is compromised, and health needs occurs.
