NUR 526 - Nurse as the Adminsitrator

(Cr: 3)
The purpose of the course is to engage students in the process of role development as nurse administrators and leaders in any health care setting.  It is important for nurse administration to identify personal and organizational goals, apply leadership skills and knowledge to implement change by working with an organization.  Also, the nurse administrator must be able to function within a health care setting by applying ethical and legal principles related to regulatory policies at the state and federal levels, credentialing agencies, third party players, and to assure that quality of care is provided to patient, families, and the community.  This course will focus on developing collegial relationships with other departments within the organization and the community that are pivotal in promoting a positive work environment and in meeting organizational outcomes.
