The junior/senior-level program is four semesters long and provides learning experiences in a variety of clinical settings, including community health agencies, clinics, hospitals and homes. Courses in the first two semesters focus on various states of wellness and illness across the lifespan, including experiences with clients in community and hospital-based settings. Courses in nursing care management, health assessment, pharmacotherapeutics, pathophysiology and genetics provide theoretical content for the application of patient-centered care. Students have the opportunity to analyze a variety of issues in professional nursing practice and healthcare and they are introduced to the process of translating evidence into nursing practice. The last two semesters focus on nursing as the complexity and vulnerability of clients increases. Each conceptual course is accompanied by the clinical application across the lifespan in a variety of settings. The transition experience is the culminating clinical experience that provides for integration and synthesis of the professional role, including clinical judgment and leadership skills. A course on the foundations of healthcare policy, including the financial and regulatory environment, supports this transition to professional practice.
