How to Enroll

This course will provide students with the opportunity to reflect on and integrate their learning and experiences in General Education courses and courses specific to the nursing major into real-world experiences in nursing, through the lens of nursing research. Skills, attitudes and knowledge from multiple sources and experiences will be discussed and used as a framework for student reflection.  The aim of this course is to introduce the student to research designs and methods, evidence based practice, critique of published nursing studies, and clinical problems and decision-making issues facing professional nurses today. Students will consider how multiple perspectives influence the design and conduct of nursing research, and how their own perspectives influence their reaction to published research.  Satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BS-Nurse students. Open to NURSING - RN to BS students only.
