The members of the Langara College School of Nursing aspire to be professional exemplars in teaching, practice, and scholarship with a focus on excellence, integrity, evidence, collaboration, and a commitment to advancing a greater understanding of people’s experiences of health, illness, healing, and health promotion. The philosophical foundations of phenomenology, feminism, critical social theory, post-colonialism, empiricism and humanism form the basis of our curriculum. The meta-concepts of health promotion and caring are influenced and informed by these philosophical foundations.

The School of Nursing received a seven-year recognition from the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia. This is the longest recognition awarded by the provincial regulatory body. Faculty and students are engaged in a variety of academic activities including presenting papers and posters at local, provincial, and national conferences.
