Benner’s work on the novice to expert continuum and the seven domains of nursing will be explored and students will apply concepts to their own practices, both past, present and future. The leadership roles of the nurse as an individual and a group member while utilizing the Christian principles such as godly character, servant attitude, honest and commitment will be emphasized. While caring for groups of patients and individuals, students will explore a variety of content areas including systems theory, professional practice models, care delivery models, nurse sensitive quality indicators, foundational documents that drive the nursing profession, financial that are relevant to supporting care in the practice setting, the influence of regulatory agencies on the delivery of care and health policies that affect health care in general. Students are expected to synthesize previously learned knowledge in complex nursing situations and to expand their abilities to use the problem-solving and decision-making processes.
