In this course students will examine their own professional practices to identify culturally sensitive relationship-centered care. They will survey the concepts of care management, holism, health promotion, and disease prevention as they apply to designing, implementing, and evaluating health care services in communities. This course will foster a spirit of inquiry about nursing knowledge, theory, and practice.
An independent study is designed to provide a student with the opportunity to develop and study a selected area of nursing. Students may study advanced aspects of theory or practice through independent field placements with faculty supervision in areas that are not available in current course offerings. NOTE: Students must obtain the appropriate Independent Study forms from the program secretary and must have approval from the chair and faculty member.
