NUR-420 Integrating Advanced Nursing Concepts

In this course, students integrate advanced nursing concepts and leadership principles to plan and implement care for clients with critical care needs. Contemporary issues related to professional nursing practice are analyzed for their impact on the client, nurse, and the healthcare system. Assimilation into the professional nursing role is initiated with a final clinical transition experience designed to promote student independence and accountability through guidance and collaboration with nurse preceptors and other healthcare team members. Regular clinical hours may vary during this rotation. The student will work the same shifts as the assigned nurse preceptor. This course is designed to be taken concurrently with NUR-428: Leadership and Management in Nursing, NUR-445: Validating Nursing Competence, and NUR-582: Financial Management in Nursing Practice and is only open to Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN Program students.

Prerequisite: Completion of NUR-410: Nursing Care of Vulnerable Populations, NUR-443: Public Health Nursing, and NUR-529: Health Policy.
