The Program consists of two 3-credit courses, Complex Care I and Complex Care II, which provide a bridge between students’ previous educational experience in nursing and that provided by the College of Nursing at graduate level.
These courses explore the relationship between nursing theory, research, education, and concepts of professional nursing practice relative to current and future states of clients and society.
They are designed to support students in examining the roles of the professional nurse in meeting the changing dimensions of health care for families, groups, communities experiencing multifaceted problems that affect health status with emphasis on case study methodology. Health promotion, primary prevention, cultural implications and research are stressed
Further details of the individual courses comprising the Bridge program can be found in the University’s graduate catalogue.
