Advancing Nursing Practice creates a foundation for achieving the BSN educational outcomes and for transitioning to baccalaureate nursing practice. As such, it provides a broad overview of professional practice and patient outcomes issues including professional practices standards, educational requirements in nursing, evidence-based care, health information technology, and population-focused care. The course applies both ethical principles and models of cultural competence to nursing education and practice; in addition, students begin the development of a learning portfolio that will serve as a means to reflect on and validate professional and academic achievements and growth throughout the program.
