NUR-445 Validating Nursing Competence

In this course, students synthesize prior learning experiences acquired from clinical practice and academic studies. Using standards of professional practice as guidelines for competence, students validate their clinical skills in nursing practice. With the use of reflective learning, critical thinking, knowledge of best practice, and transformative learning, students finalize their e-Portfolio, which provides evidence of their clinical competence as Baccalaureate nurse generalists. NUR-445, a capstone course, is the final course in the BSN program.
