611 Theoretical Foundations of Nursing (April 14-June 23, 2014)

This course focuses on the nature and use of inquiry in the development and refinement of nursing knowledge. It provides students with the opportunity to discuss and analyze conceptual, philosophical, and theoretical bases for advanced nursing practice from a primary health care perspective. Students will critically examine theories from nursing, as well as borrowed theories from other disciplines that inform and guide nursing practice, research, and education. Students will analyze concepts relevant to advanced nursing practice and critique and discuss the value of theory to the future of nursing. During this course, students will develop increasing competence in professional oral and written communication.
