Concepts of Professional Nursing for RNs
This course focuses on concepts of professionalism, communication skills, and issues related to Baccalaureate-level nursing practice, nursing models, and the formation of a personal philosophy of nursing. The course includes three credit hours of theory (45 clock-hours). This course, as others in the curriculum, anticipates that students, having completed computer and English classes, are able to both cite references and format papers using the APA style as a foundation for producing scholarly papers in other writing courses. DNRS 324 meets the requirement for a written communication course (see Communications Requirements in the Academic Section of the Academic Catalog).
All prerequisites must be completed with a minimum grade of C (2.00). DNRS 324 is a prerequisite to all other RN-BSN nursing courses.
