Course Description:

In this course, students and mentors plan a program of study leading to the baccalaureate degree, focused around students’ understanding of the nursing profession, as well as their analysis of their own academic and professional skills, experiences and goals. During this process, students identify concepts and skill sets, as elucidated in the AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Nursing Education, needed to perform effectively in professional baccalaureate nurse roles. Students will be introduced to the history and future of the profession, the impact of culture within health care systems, and the influence of culture on the role of the professional nurse. Students articulate an understanding of professional values and value based nursing behaviors. This course satisfies the college’s liberal arts and sciences requirements.
