NURS 8410 - Best Practices In Nursing Specialties


(5 cr.) A scholarly inquiry of key concepts in nursing is presented in this course. Students analyze best practices and evolving issues in their nursing areas of practice. They explore advanced specialty practice problems through a guided initial review of literature. Students develop a program or project to address clinical/practice questions under the guidance of an approved clinical mentor. Students generate a portfolio evidence plan to address clinical/practice questions related to issues such as program planning, practice change, consultation, quality improvement projects, pilot study proposals, and Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals. Note: This is a 5-credit course (4 didactic credits, 1 clinical credit). Clinical hours have a 1:6 ratio (credit/clinical), resulting in 72 clinical hours.
