Values

The Yale School of Nursing is a community that holds an expansive view of health and believes that access to high-quality, patient-centered health care is a social right, not a privilege. In our intellectual and clinical work, we value integrity, dignity, rigor, curiosity, and excellence. Mindful of our traditions, as well as those of Yale University, we emphasize innovation grounded in creativity and the integration of education, scholarship, practice, and policy in service of social justice and health equity. Respect for diversity of thought, ideas, and opinions of others guides all of our work. We value the wise use of resources. We are committed to interprofessional education, research, and practice, and mentorship of the next generation of leaders. We strive to create an environment for study that is caring and supports openness and transparency.
