Nursing is an art and a science. The art components incorporate interpersonal skills, and embody certain values, benefits and standards unique to nursing. The science component involves the development of cognitive and technical skills required for nursing practice. The competent trained nurse must be proficient in both the art and science of nursing which are critical for professional development of nurses. Congruent with this belief, mission and vision, the nursing program offers sound, flexible and accessible nursing education for committed young men and women pursuing a certificate in general Nursing (RN). Oyo State College of Nursing and Midwifery considers the person, environment, health and nursing to form the framework for nursing practice.
