Mission Statement | Department of Cardiopulmonary Sciences

The mission of NSU’s Department of Cardiopulmonary Sciences is to advance the respiratory care profession through leadership in teaching, research, and service.  We will provide a premier health care education experience in a learning environment that cultivates critical thinking, inspires professional leadership, encourages and promotes research, and imparts a strong awareness of ethical standards and social diversity.  By engaging all faculty members and students in research and scholarly activity, we intend to cultivate the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to not only support national leadership for the respiratory care profession, but also to develop future educators and providers in professionally related health care arenas.
