Our Mission & Philosophy

At PA College, we educate for excellence in health care practice, leadership and the continuous acquisition of knowledge.

Our Philosophy

On Health

Health is a dynamic and holistic process. Optimal health reflects the peak functioning of physiological, mental, emotional, sociocultural and spiritual dimensions throughout the lifespan.

Health care requires collaboration and competency from all practitioners within a complex spectrum of primary, secondary and tertiary delivery systems. People have the right to seek and receive quality, affordable health care.

On Learning

Learning occurs in an interactive atmosphere that encourages and provides opportunities for self-direction and critical thinking. We promote a nurturing learning environment that cultivates global perspectives, self-awareness and intelligent citizenship. Our programs equip students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become professionally competent and socially responsible.
