NURS 6025 - Managing a Continuum of Care for Positive Patient Outcomes (4 sem. cr.) While the current healthcare system is inundated with the needs of aging patients with chronic disease, providers are seeking ways to advance patient outcomes management and promote initiatives that will improve the long-term health of the population. In this course, students explore concepts related to the management of disease and the prevention of further disability. They identify the impact of cultural, social, political, legal, and environmental factors on providing a continuum of care. Using an evidence- based approach, students also evaluate a variety of topics that address documentation, evaluation, and quality outcome standards. Students apply methods, tools, and standards learned in the course to the development of care/case management plans. Through these projects, students reflect on the nursing role in achieving positive outcomes for individuals, groups, and communities.
The nursing practice experiences are designed to reflect the philosophical beliefs of the curriculum and are leveled, based on the focus and progression of the students through the curriculum. Planned nursing practice experiences focus on applying accumulated program theory. For example, Nursing Practice I (NCL700) is a third semester course that places an emphasis on critical thinking, self-reflection, utilization of research findings and the application of concepts from leadership and change. Nursing Practice II (NCL800) is a fourth semester course that places an emphasis on the multiplicity of nursing roles in hospital and community settings. The intent of the second nursing practice course is to expand the student’s perspective of nursing practice through the use of critical social theory and their lived experience as a reflective practitioner. Students have the opportunity to develop increased depth and breadth of knowledge and skill application to the care of particular populations guided by career plans and goals identified during their Leadership Course (NUR831). In addition, personal learning goals are enlightened by discussion of nursing knowledge, issues of practice, health assessment, community nursing, epidemiology, nursing research, contemporary nursing concepts in practice, and organizational contexts of practice that are introduced, and discussed during their curriculum courses.
PhD students, in collaboration with their academic advisor, will complete a program of study within the first semester of study. The form, Program of Study for PhD in Nursing Degree, should be submitted to the PhD Program Coordinator, who will sign the form and distribute it to the student, advisor, College of Nursing Graduate Coordinator, and the ETSU Graduate School. The student and advisor should review the form regularly throughout coursework to assure the student’s progression. Should a student wish to change her or his program of study, he or she will meet with the advisor to prepare an Application for Change in Approved Program of Study and submit it to the PhD Program Coordinator, who will distribute the signed form as above. At completion of coursework, the Graduate Program Director will review the Program of Study to assure degree requirements are met. The curriculum plan for full and part time study is

If students and faculty are in the clinical area when the university announces it is closing due to a storm, the clinical instructors use their judgement whether to cancel or to continue with clinical for the day. Therefore, faculty should have student cell phone numbers to contact them prior to the clinical day, if possible. If students are in a preceptored experience or co-assigned to registered nurses, they are expected to go to clinical. If students are unable to get into clinical, they cannot be penalized for missing the day but they may need to make up the time if necessary. Students do not have to leave campus when it is closed due to a storm.
The School of Nursing recognizes the importance of identifying students who are at risk of failing a clinical course or who are deemed unsafe in clinical practice. Once the student has been identified as at risk or unsafe, through an occurrence or a pattern of behaviour*, a process is put in place to assist the student towards achieving competent and safe practice. If the at risk student’s performance does not improve, the student will fail the clinical course. If the unsafe student’s performance does not improve and continues to place himself or herself or others at harm or potential harm, the student will fail the clinical course and student may be withdrawn from the program in accordance with the SON Promotion Regulations (see current University Calendar) Procedure for the At Risk Student
15. Students who stop following their plan or who do not take classes for a semester or more will be required to contact the Graduate Program Advisor the semester before they wish to return (by the end of week 8 of the Fall and Spring semesters or by the end of week 5 of the Summer semester) to have their plan of study updated and be reactivated in the system before they will be allowed to register for the next semester’s courses. All nursing and campus deadlines apply regardless of a student’s current enrollment status. 16. After one (1) year with no nursing course work, the student will be on the inactive list. The student will
For clinical/practicum rotations, students are required to dress in business casual (no jeans) and a white lab coat with the University of Nevada, Reno identification (UNR/Wolf Card ID) badge visible. Obtain your UNR/Wolf Card ID at the Wolf Card Office in the Joe Crowley Student Union, room 204. Photo identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.) is required. ID cards may only be issued to students who have registered for classes. Exceptions to this policy are otherwise defined by the environment in which the student is assigned (i.e. Pediatrics).
An acceptable level of mathematical proficiency is required as a prerequisite for NURS 2004 Pharmacology and Nutritional Therapies to ensure accuracy in calculating medication dosages in this course. Therefore, one of the pre-requisites that must be satisfied before you take NURS 2004 is the achievement of a score of at least 50 on the MPT. If the student does not achieve this score, they must demonstrate successful completion of Math 102N Mathematics Skills Program for the BN (Collaborative) Program through distance learning at Memorial University before taking NURS 2004 Pharmacology and Nutritional Therapies. For students in the 4 year program, it is highly recommended that you complete this course before the end of intercession in Year One. For students in the Fast Track Option, this course must be completed by the end of the fall semester in Year One.
Student Union: Completed and formally dedicated in November 2007, the Joe Crowley Student Union is one of the most transformational buildings ever built on campus. The 167,000-square-foot, "green" environmentally friendly facility signals a shift in campus expansion, offering the campus and community a new centrally located "front door" to the University from Virginia Street. Named in honor of University President Joe Crowley, whose 23-year tenure as the institution's chief executive is a record, the Joe Crowley Student Union features a two-story ASUN Bookstore, a variety of food and drink retailers, a 1,200-seat grand ballroom, a 220-seat, two-level movie theater, a 2,000-square-foot student organization center, and is home to the Associated Students of the University of Nevada, Graduate Student
Any student with a visible or non-visible disability who requests “reasonable accommodation” to his or her condition should provide medical and/or psychological documentation of the disability to the Student Life Office and refer to the information in the JU catalogue and SON Handbook for additional information regarding student disabilities. A student with a learning disability should weigh carefully with his/her advisor the requirements of the nursing program in order to ascertain its suitability, given the nature of the disability.
Plagiarism is one of many forms of academic misconduct (such as cheating, misrepresentation, and submission of false information) that are described in the university Student Code of Academic Conduct. Strict penalties are enforced for students who commit academic misconduct, including plagiarism, at Ryerson (www.ryerson.ca/acadcouncil). The minimum penalty is a mark of “0” for the work and a DN (Disciplinary Notice) will be placed on the student’s academic history. It will not be possible for a student to drop a course in which misconduct has occurred. Students may fail the course, be required to attend information sessions concerning academic integrity, or be expelled from the program or the university. The faculty/program may recommend the maximum penalty regardless of whether this is the first charge of academic misconduct. In all cases of plagiarism, students will have a “disciplinary notice” designation “DN” placed on their academic record and their transcript. This notice will appear on the student’s transcripts until after graduation or for eight years (whichever comes first). If students have a “DN” designation on their transcript and do not graduate (e.g. do not complete the program in which they are enrolled) the designation will remain on their transcripts for eight years. Students are encouraged to read the new Student Code of Conduct that became effective September 1, 2003 (go to www.ryerson.ca/acadcouncil, click on “What’s New?” and select the March 4, 2003 academic council materials).
Students are to provide several required forms and information to the School of Nursing Graduate secretary before the start of all practicum courses. Some of this information will need to be submitted one time prior to the first practicum course or as needed as information expires. Other information will need to be submitted before each practicum course. In addition, students may be asked to submit a copy of this information to their clinical instructor or clinical agency site prior to the beginning of the practicum. Family Nurse Practitioner students will receive instructions regarding the process of uploading health information into Typhon, the online practicum management system.
Each student, with the help of his or her advisor(s), will identify the semester during which s/he wishes to complete the Teaching Residency, develop objectives for the residency based on the student’s prior teaching experiences, and identify a faculty preceptor. The faculty preceptor may be a different person from the advisor and may be a master teacher (e.g. practice professor) who can craft an exceptional teaching experience for the student. The advisor, preceptor and student will plan activities to accomplish the objectives and will submit this information on the Teaching Residency proposal form. The form, which serves as registration, should be submitted before the beginning of the residency, and before the end of the Course Selection Period in any semester, to the Office of Student Services for review and approval by the Graduate Group in Nursing Chair. The Teaching Residency may be taken any time prior to graduation, but registration may occur in a different semester to ensure the student has full- time registration (i.e. Fall Semester, Year 3). Only one member of the Graduate Group in Nursing may be recorded in the registration system as the faculty of record. Timely submission of the proposal and evaluation forms is required.

An interesting finding of the present study was that there was no significant difference be- tween the emotional intelligence of daily and nightly students. This finding can be an answer to the question of many nursing teachers who find no difference in the clinical working of nursing students in spite of their different grades in the Konkoor (national university en- tering examinations) and even in some nightly students work better. This study showed that the emotional intelligence of those students who reported their interests in nursing studies was higher than those who were not interested (even though this difference was not signifi- cant). Perhaps, the reason is related to the fact that emotional intelligence is one of the deter- mining factors of people's adjustment and therefore, those who have more adjustment abilities have higher emotional intelligence. 5
