NUR 363 - Clinical Nursing Leadership

3 credits (PREREQUISITES: NUR 351)

The focus of this course is on the professional nurse as a change agent in the clinical setting to positively influence the patient's level of wellness. Review of the local and national systems and how they affect the practice of nursing and ultimately, patient outcomes will be analyzed. Utilizing the Goodwin College Theoretical Framework and criteria from Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN), students will develop an evidence-based practice change project for the clinical setting. This course allows the nurse to apply and integrate previously learned skills in research, leadership, management, and nursing in order to transition into a more independent practitioner role.
