Academic Overview
This 3-credit senior level course focuses on professional role development, nursing leadership, and contemporary issues in nursing.  Students will gain increased understanding of the staff nurse's role in leadership, with opportunities for practical experience in the areas of delegation, priority setting, critical thinking, decision making, quality improvement, evidence-based nursing practice, information management and safety.  Students will examine leadership and management theories.  Students will explore legal, ethical and political issues in nursing.  Students will complete a critical reflection journal and revise their philosophy of nursing.

The clinical component includes an 80-hour clinical practicum with a nurse preceptor.  The clinical experience provides an opportunity for students to integrate nursing theory, research, leadership, management, and ethics into their nursing practice.  Students will participate in delegation, priority setting, decision making, evidence-based nursing, information management and interdisciplinary experiences in an approved health care setting.
