NURS 6110 - The Nurse Leader: New Perspectives on the Profession


(3 sem. cr.) Nurses who assume leadership roles in healthcare must understand various change and management theories, be ready to adapt to constantly evolving work settings and cultures, and lead others by positive example. In this course, students examine and discuss the impact that changes in healthcare systems have on transforming the nursing profession as well the opportunities for leadership resulting from such change. They also assess a variety of theories related to leadership and management. Students engage in activities designed to provide practical application of content on topics such as followership, current situations in practice that require change, strategies to reduce resistance to change, and the development of leadership attributes. Through this course, students have the opportunity to learn strategies and gain skills for becoming empowered as well as for acquiring and sustaining leadership roles in nursing.
