Transitions in Advanced Nursing Practice

For Registered Nurses with bachelor degrees in areas other than nursing.

Students examine realities of modern nursing practice; explore the philosophical, professional, and theoretical bases for nursing practice as a framework for graduate study; reflect on professional practice and evaluate it in light of established standards; explore strategies aimed at promoting success in graduate education such as critical thinking and written communication; analyze issues and trends in the health care delivery system; and develop a population focus for nursing interventions that improve health outcomes consistent with Healthy People 2020. In addition, students examine professional values essential to advancing nursing practice.
