Learning goals and student learning outcomes
The following goals and learning outcomes have been established for students pursuing a degree in Nursing:
- Evaluate ethical decision making from a personal and organizational perspective, develop an understanding of how these two perspectives may create conflict of interest, and act to resolve them.
- Integrate a wide range of theories and knowledge from nursing and other disciplines to develop a comprehensive and holistic approach, implement advanced roles, and continue life-long learning.
Evidence Based Practice
- Access, analyze, and interpret information (theoretical, research, other) at the individual/family and community level to provide high quality health care, initiate change, and improve nursing practice and health care outcomes.
- Use a systematic approach to identify, analyze and diagnose real or potential problems with a variety of health care settings, and develop, evaluate and test possible solutions based upon highest level of evidence available, allowing for innovative solutions to the problem.
- Manage communication, including the uses of informatics, with clients, colleagues, and diverse groups to foster effective collaboration to promote optimal health outcomes in individuals/families/communities.
