NURS 434 Clinical Seminar and Practicum

5 credits

Assists the RN to BS student in synthesizing concepts and experiences from their course work into an integrated whole. Using a balance of theoretical learning and clinical experiences, students will refine their nursing practice through a mentored relationship, and reflect upon the transformative aspects of education. Students will select a clinical experience that expands their current clinical expertise or that allows them to explore a new arena of nursing practice. Thirty hours of mentored practice will be required and research will expand the student's understanding of the selected clinical setting and a concept for presentation in a seminar. Theoretical concepts will be explored. Students preparing to take this course must have completed all program requirements.

Prerequisite(s): NURS 414 and NURS 424

NOTE: Beginning in Spring, 2013, NURS 434 will be revised and offered as a 3-credit course. Students are encouraged to work with their Academic Advisor to make sure that they have the required 30 credits at Stevenson University.
