    The specific courses under consideration are:



    NR-500: Foundational Concepts & Applications:

    This foundational nursing course introduces the graduate student to the conceptual foundations and skills essential for the master’s-prepared nurse. A framework for professional nursing practice, scholarly communication of ideas, use of critical inquiry and information dissemination and professional development of the master’s-prepared nurse are explored.


    NR-505: Advanced Research Methods: Evidence-Based Practice

    This course provides the scientific basis for the analysis and use of research to further develop a knowledge base and the skill set that will maximize evidence-based practice in healthcare settings. Students will conduct an in-depth analysis of research methods as a framework for studying clinical issues. Students will build on their knowledge of the research process with an emphasis on analyzing the components of problems and issues related to nursing and other disciplines; finding, evaluating, and critiquing available literature; and critically evaluating qualitative and quantitative research methods, including design, sampling, data collection strategies, measurement, and interpretation of results. All of these skills will enable students to evaluate and critique findings to enhance evidence-based nursing practice, including dissemination of findings to support innovative change. Ethical issues will also be addressed throughout the course.


    NR-506: Healthcare Policy:

    In this course, the student explores topics related to healthcare policy, including the processes involved in developing and analyzing policy components and consequences currently impacting the nursing profession, consumers and the healthcare system. The forces responsible for current healthcare policies, including historical, ethical and political factors are examined. Current policy-related controversies and challenges are also examined. Students investigate and propose strategies that nurses employ to impact policy development at institutional, local, national and international levels.


    NR512: Fundamentals of Nursing Informatics 

    This course provides foundational or introductory knowledge about informatics, with an emphasis on developing an understanding of concepts relevant to nursing informatics (NI). NI is a nursing specialty that supports quality nursing care through the distribution of data and information so that knowledge can be generated, processed, acquired, and disseminated. NI synthesizes nursing science with computer, information, and cognitive sciences. You will explore informatics-based health applications that support decision making in the four areas of nursing: clinical, administrative, research and education. These applications enhance the value of nursing.
