1 MN-NP GRADUATE COURSES Course Descriptions & Objectives NURS 504 RESEARCH AND EVIDENCE-INFORMED PRACTICE (3) The purpose of this course is to build foundational knowledge and skills in searching the literature, critically analyzing research and synthesizing evidence, and applying this evidence to issues of relevance to nursing practice. 1. Describe the nature of evidence and its contribution to knowledge development in nursing. 2. Identify research that is relevant to a particular problem or topic area in nursing. 3. Systematically assess and evaluate the quality of this research and the usefulness of the evidence it provides. 4. Synthesize and interpret this evidence to develop justifiable conclusions and identify knowledge gaps. 5. Apply strategies for using this evidence to address specific nursing practice goals and issues. NURS 505 STATISTICAL LITERACY IN NURSING (3) Statistics, a perplexing subject for many students, is an important means of communication in science and in much of everyday life. Statistics arise in everything from opinion polls, to survey results, to the latest nursing and health-related research. Understanding the fundamental concepts that underlie statistics is critical to success in the everyday world of nursing. This course is designed, not as a primer in data manipulation, but as an introduction to a scientific approach to thinking. It is aimed at beginners with limited mathematical skill. The goal here is to promote appreciation and comprehension of statistical information rather than competence in statistical techniques, per se. Some computational techniques will be addressed to facilitate understanding of the underlying concepts. The course is constructed to meet several objectives. Of concern is the development of comprehension of statistical thinking and basic quantitative data analysis. Upon completion, students should be able to better cope with the flow of information and claims commonly encountered by nurses with advanced standing. Such competence is necessary for making informed choices, for assessing the opinions of others, and for making reasonable suppositions about good nursing practice. The focus on evidence-based, or evidence-informed, nursing practice rests, in part, on knowledge of statistics. 1. Demonstrate working knowledge of basic statistical terms and notation 2. Demonstrate working knowledge of graphics (tables, graphs, figures) commonly used to 1

2 communicate in nursing. 3. Interpret statistical information commonly presented in nursing and other relevant health research literature 4. Critically evaluate nursing research claims 5. Detect some misuses of statistics 6. Enhance interpersonal collaborative skills in order to perform and critique health research using statistics. NURS 506 HEALTH PROMOTION IN PRACTICE (3) Nurses, nurse practitioners and other clinicians can be highly influential in fostering health promotion in clinical and community practice settings. Nursing 506 examines the role of health promotion in diverse practice contexts. Class members will explore various health promotion strategies, approaches and interventions. Emphasis is on how to adapt health promotion strategies, approaches and interventions in ways that take the social and economic contexts of peoples lives into account 1. Identify assumptions and values that underpin various conceptualizations of health promotion 2. Critically analyze current recommendations for health promotion, harm reduction, and illness prevention 3.

Emphasis will be placed on understanding the normal anatomy and physiology, the pathophysiology and the adaptive responses underlying common acute and chronic conditions found in the Canadian population. In addition, the influence of age, gender, ethnic background and socioeconomic status will be reviewed for the selected illnesses. The course will involve classroom instruction, clinical case study discussions and take-home assignments. Lecture topics and case studies are chosen on the basis of common causes of mortality and morbidity for Canadians. 1. Describe the normal anatomy, physiology and physiological alternations in relation to specific clinical conditions and disease processes that affect Canadians 2. Describe the epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of specific disease processes 3.

Communication with student peers will be maintained through Connect discussions. The aim of NURS 578 is to integrate the CRNBC Nurse Practitioner Competencies into practice while under the supervision of a physician or nurse practitioner preceptor. As the goal is to achieve entry to practice (as a nurse practitioner, family) level competence, the course objectives are the CRNBC competencies. Students are expected to know their scope of practice and to practice within their scope as articulated in the document, Scope of Practice for Nurse Practitioners (Family) Standards Limits and Conditions, available on line, at CRBNC, NURS 591 PROFESSIONAL AND ETHICAL ISSUES IN NURSE PRACTITIONER PRACTICE (3) This course provides students the opportunity to expand their understanding of the Family Nurse Practitioner role in the larger context of the British Columbia healthcare system. The goal of the course is to identify and discuss current social, educational, economic, political, legal, ethical, 8

10 NURS 596 PRIMARY CARE / CULMINATING PROJECT (3) This course is a project that addresses a focus area for nurse practitioners. The focus may be, but is not limited to the following: improving an area of NP practice; work with a patient population receiving NP care; an innovation in NP practice; exploration and clarification of an issue affecting NPs; an aspect of interdisciplinary practice or a political activity that impacts NP practice. The project will demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the topic, use of the literature, and an evidence-based approach. Students are encouraged to begin thinking about the project in the first term of the program. OUTCOMES: The project may take the form of program or policy development, a presentation to a target group or professional conference, the design of innovative techniques for the delivery of patient care, a paper for publication, or a collaborative interdisciplinary effort that affects practice. Other possibilities will be considered on an individual basis. 10
