NS4310 - Concept Integration for the Professional Nursing Role II - 5 Credits
This integrative concept course enhances the student's understanding of the complex roles professional nurses must fulfill in a focus area.

The supervised clinical or preceptored experience supports the role transformation of students and promotes clinical competence at the BSN preparation level. Students will practice the essential role development skills of communication, collaboration, negotiation, delegation, coordination, and evaluation of interdisciplinary work to enhance patient safety and quality care. Students will apply the principles of leadership and management in a specific practice area of nursing.
