NURS 300 - Transition to Professional Nursing (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
This course introduces students to the structure of the discipline of nursing, selected theoretical and conceptual models and their application to nursing practice, research, and education as a foundation for socialization/re-socialization into the professional nursing practice. With the current emphasis on quality health care and evidence-based-nursing practice, it is every nurse’s responsibility to ensure that one’s practice is competent, safe, meets legal/ethical standards; and is evidence-based. This course focuses on the transition from AAS nursing student to Baccalaureate registered professional nurse.
