NURS 472 - Advanced Nursing Concepts

6 cr. (3 lecture - 3 lab)


(Prerequisites: NURS 450 , NURS 452 : co-requisite NURS 471 )

This course examines the leadership process in nursing and correlates the process to safe, evidenced-based practice as it relates to physiological and psychological adaptations to complex dysfunctional health patterns. Continued use of the nursing process, informatics and evidence-based practice are emphasized.  Development of case management skills in collaboration with the interdisciplinary health team further develops the professional nursing role of caregiver, advocate, teacher, and leader/manager in promoting, restoring and maintaining health. Clinical experiences are designed to enhance leadership development in caring for patients with complex health issues.   Three hours/week lecture; 14 hours clinical lab/week for 9 weeks (alternate with NURS 471  lab). 

The following option is available for ROTC Nurse cadets:  subject to annual review, 1.5 credits may be awarded for successful completion of the ROTC Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP) in place of NURS 472A Lab.  Three hours/week lecture; 14 hours clinical lab/week for 4.5 weeks, alternate with NURS 471 and 472B labs.
