Course DescriptionThis is the first of two clinical courses in which the students will use nursing and other theorists to guide their practice. Students will apply teaching-learning, communication, health promotion and community health principles when working with individuals, groups and families in community-based settings. Students will practice culturally sensitive, creative and flexible nursing. Emphasis will be placed on critical thinking, self-reflection, utilization of research findings and the application of concepts from leadership and change.
Sample Course Outline
In order to take this course, you must have a current nursing registration/licensure with a College of Nurses or nursing regulatory body in a Canadian province or territory.
