    NR500 - Foundational Concepts & Applications

    This course introduces the graduate student to the conceptual foundations

    development of the master’s-prepared nurse are explored

     

    NR501 - Theoretical Basis for Advanced Nursing Practice

    In this course, the student examines multiple theories from nursing and

    in order to better support decision making in the areas of nursing such as: clinical,

    administrative, research, quality and safety, health policy and education.
