NU 370 Nursing Leadership

This course focuses on the nursing profession and leadership principles, which are integral to the provision of healthcare for individuals, families, communities, and a global society. Students explore complex issues and trends in nursing related to the provision of cost-effective, safe, quality patient care, nursing as a profession, policy and advocacy, and global health. The development of an understanding and awareness of their need to become involved in healthcare policies and changes in healthcare systems is fostered by an analysis of current issues such as cross-cultural communication, the nursing shortage, inefficient healthcare systems, and international issues. Discussion and assignments will include implementation strategies and skills for successful transition into the workplace environment and enter into practice.
