NURS 8400 - Evidence-Based Practice I: Assessment and Design


(5 cr.) In this course, students focus on the competencies required of the healthcare professional in planning for the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of health promotion and disease prevention initiatives. They explore and discuss strategic approaches to planning, implementation, and evaluation, including cost-benefit analysis. Preparing for their DNP project, students select a faculty mentor and develop portfolio evidence through an integrative critical review of literature, which leads them to identify a clinical/practice question. Note: This is a 5-cr. course (4 didactic cr., 1 clinical cr.). Clinical hours have a 1:6 ratio (credit/clinical), resulting in 72 clinical hours.
