Fetterman School of Nursing
Welcome to the Fetterman School of Nursing
How exciting it is to welcome you to the Fetterman School of Nursing at Toccoa Falls College! You have been called to one of the most challenging and rewarding professions.
It is our desire to equip nurses who will shape the profession of nursing and have a profound impact in transforming healthcare and transforming lives through the uniqueness of a Christ-centered nursing practice. Consistent with the mission and purpose of the College, the School of Nursing embraces three core values that have application and impact in all of the program’s endeavors: Christian worldview, servant leadership, and nursing as a sacred ministry. Nursing, as a profession, embraces not only the arts and sciences but encompasses these values. At the Fetterman School of Nursing, nursing is a ministry of compassionate care. No other profession has the unique opportunity to minister to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people who are suffering and in pain. Nursing is a sacred profession – a sacred ministry of caring.
To achieve these ends, the nursing faculty actively engage students in the discovery of the meaning of the Christian worldview and compassionate care in the formation of their nursing practice. Our professors integrate teaching and service and have a passion for practice that enriches the classroom. You will join a Christ-centered community of students and teachers who focus on academic excellence and the integration of faith and learning within a biblical framework. We will work together so that you achieve success in your academic endeavors, excel in compassionate care and moral leadership, and grow in your knowledge of nursing as a sacred ministry.
