NUR 508 - Role Development Within Professional Organizations

Students will learn how to function effectively within an organization including the use of the American Nurses Association (AN) standards, or National League for Nursing (NLN) standards, National Organization for Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) standards, ethical principles, professional values and beliefs as a framework for nursing practice. The purpose of this core course is to engage students in the process of role development as a nurse educator, upper level nurse administrator, global health nurse, or family nurse practitioner in any setting. It is important for nurses to first explore these roles and to identify their career goals. The student will engage in advanced exploration and analysis of nursing leadership, informatics, education, healthcare delivery systems, health policy, global health, and resource allocation in various healthcare organizational environments. Students will examine organizational environments to address quality initiatives within interdisciplinary settings. The course will also focus on the nurse as a change agent by developing a comprehensive plan to address a professional issue,
implementing collegial interdisciplinary relationships within an organization, and identifying the role of the nurse to perform life-long learning by engaging in scholarship.
