|HCS||NUR||1074||3||Advanced Clinical Practicum|
This course enables the registered nurse student to further develop critical thinking, leadership abilities, communication and decision-making skills in the development and implementation of an evidence-based clinical capstone project to enhance patient care quality. A systematic approach is used to identify a clinical topic for evidence-based literature review, presentation, and evaluation. Each student identifies specific learning activities for the practicum, which relate directly to a selected culturally diverse environment. Under the guidance of faculty and a clinical preceptor, didactic seminars, assignments, and mentored clinical practicum are used to foster independence and self-direction for all students.
