NURS 428 Evolution of Professional Nursing

Course Description: This course, for students in the accelerated program, will focus on the role of the professional nurse as a partner in the delivery of acute and critical care services using advanced evidence based concepts. Students will apply principles of inter-professional communication skills and inter-disciplinary collaboration for improving patient health outcomes. Concepts of information management and application of patient care technology will be examined in order to support safe nursing practice. An emphasis will be placed on evidence-based knowledge and sensitivity to variations in age, gender, culture, health disparities, race, socioeconomic status, and spiritual needs of increasingly diverse critically ill patient populations. While the course will mainly focus on adults, other populations will be considered. Clinical experiences will be provided with clients in acute and critical care.

Course Rotation: NY and PL: Fall and Summer.
