Nursing Management in the Health Care System Practicum is a Capstone leadership course, which builds on knowledge gained in basic sciences, humanities, and all previous sophomores, junior and senior level nursing courses. Standards of professional nursing practice including those from American Nurses Association (ANA), Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), Louisiana State Board of Nursing (LSBN), Sigma Theta Tau, American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), and other specialty organizations are incorporated into the course and plans of care. This course provides the opportunity for clinical application and interfaces with the theory course, Nursing Management in the Health Care System Theory. In the practicum setting, students apply the core values of caring, professionalism, respect, integrity, diversity and excellence using the nursing process in the management of patient care. Students are provided an opportunity to apply and practice nursing management theories with a group of patients in the role of manager and coordinator of care, and in a one-to-one nurse preceptor learning situation. Students examine and apply their own nursing leadership skills distinguishing them from management skills. [180 hours practicum]. Prerequisites: NURS 4352, 4362. 4372,4357, and 4358.
