Focuses on nursing care of adult clients experiencing complex health problems, those with unpredictable outcomes, consistent with the ANA (2004) Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice. Therapeutic interventions address the nurse's leadership role of promoting health, guiding the person, and shaping the health environment through advocacy, multidisciplinary collaboration, evaluation of outcomes and effective management of resources. Socio-environmental factors influencing the person, nurse and health care decisions are analyzed.

Experiential learning practicum (simulation and mentorship) provides students with repeated opportunities to apply and refine their clinical practice in the care of persons with complex health problems. Students will analyze the professional nursing role, promote health, guide the person, and shape the health care environment through advocacy, interdisciplinary collaboration, and effective management of resources in acute and critical care environments.

Apply advanced strategies for selecting and evaluating various research designs used to investigate nursing phenomena. Emphasis is on sampling strategies, instrumentation, data collection methods, data analysis techniques and interpretation of findings. Critically examine scientific rigor and ethical concerns related to research with human subjects.

Explore the implications of genomics/genetics, ethics and technological advances on advanced nursing practice. Examine foundational principles of genetics and the impact of genetics/genomics on individual, family and population health. Apply knowledge of ethical theories and principles related to clinical practice and shared decision-making to support patient-centered care. Analyze ethical, regulatory, and legal factors when selecting and evaluating patient care technology.

Weekly seminar discussions or presentations based on nursing or interdisciplinary research, theory development or methods alternating with focused dissertation discussions with faculty. Detailed exploration of grant development skills integrated across the four semester sequence supports skill development for dissertation proposal.
