The intensive-clinical experience supports objectives identified in the Senior Synthesis Seminar. Students demonstrate and use evidence-based research to support clinical judgment. Students analyze and reflect on experiences encountered within the clinical arena. Emphasis is on supporting the student toward autonomous professional nursing practice.
