NURS 4221 - Leadership Competencies in Nursing and Healthcare


(5 cr.) Contemporary nurses who wish to influence the current healthcare system must equip themselves with the knowledge and competencies to lead in times of pressure, constant change, and innovation. Students in this course work toward gaining these skills and increasing self-awareness in the context of organizational challenges and individual motivation. They also learn skills and techniques in team building; strengthening interpersonal, communication, and interdisciplinary effectiveness; promoting meaningful use of data to shape a preferred future for nursing; translating strategic vision into action; and implementing and managing organizational change. Students apply course concepts through case studies, self-assessments, and 360-degree feedback, and a 45-hour practicum in a selected clinical setting. Through this practicum experience, students gain professional knowledge from top-level leaders in nursing and healthcare.
