Therapeutic Principles provides the theoretical principles and psychomotor skills associated with nursing interventions across health care delivery settings and populations. The course includes a classroom portion to enhance student comprehension of essential therapeutic principles and simulated learning opportunities to synthesize, apply, and refine clinical skills with the ultimate goal of providing quality and safe care to patients.
CARE includes a focus on Compassion, Awareness of self and cultural variance, Resilience, and Effective communication for interprofessional teams. This learner-centered seminar course facilitates student exploration of professional concepts foundational to safe, high quality, patient- & family-centered nursing care across all settings and populations and to enhance student awareness of self within the nurse-patient clinical encounter.
The emphasis of this course is to understand the EBP process and its application to professional practice and research. Students will critique current literature specific to design, methodology and ethical standards; frame a research question relevant to their area of practice, search for evidence, and appraise the evidence using a defined template; and explore a variety of methods to disseminate evidence-based practice in their practice setting.
