(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 an evidence-based practice question and develop and implement an intervention within the practicum setting. Students disseminate the project plan and results at the practicum site. 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.
