Leadership and Management in Nursing

Course Description

This course is designed to prepare a Registered Nursing student to function as a graduate nurse. It builds on prior learning experiences in the management of nursing care of patients, culminating in readiness to function as a newly graduated registered nurse. The course integrates the knowledge of pathophysiology, diagnostics, pharmacology, communication concepts, and therapeutic interventions in order to facilitate culturally congruent nursing care. Students will become competent in the application of nursing processes, research, problem-solving and use of clinical judgment within the framework of safe patient-centered, evidence-based care. The focus of this course includes the managerial/leadership role, interdisciplinary practice, legal challenges of clinical practice, and trends within the nursing profession. Both NURS 96 and NURS 96L must be taken and passed concurrently within the same quarter (failure of either component requires both courses to be retaken).
