NURS 623 - Transformational Nursing Leadership in Community, Regulatory, and Healthcare Organizations (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
In this course, students discuss the basis for effective leadership in nursing and in the US healthcare environment, strategic planning, operational management, national healthcare regulatory agencies and the challenges healthcare leaders face now and in the future. This course explores the application of behavioral sciences to human resource management in healthcare.  Theories and approaches to leadership will be compared along with the impact of these theories and roles on the organization. Key elements to becoming an effective transformational leader will be explored. The emphasis of this course is on examining, conducting, and evaluating competency-based and culturally competent nursing administrative practices in the management of human resources. Based on criteria from ANA Scope and Standards for Nurse Administrators, Code of Ethics, and national healthcare agency accreditation, the student uses relevant theoretical and evidence-based research to address issues related to the restructuring of the healthcare environment, hiring, employment, labor relations, employee assistance, and problems of harassment, discrimination, workplace violence, nursing staff turnover, and advocating for the well-being of nurses in multicultural and diverse healthcare settings.
