NURSING CAPSTONE

This capstone course focuses on integration and synthesis of knowledge, skills, and competencies from nursing, other disciplines, and the arts and sciences. Application of specific concepts and theories, such as communication, critical thinking, and leadership, enables students to transform theory to practice within health care systems. This course includes 20 hours of practice experience.

Prerequisite: Active and unencumbered RN license, ethics requirement, and written English requirement. Students are eligible for this requirement when they have no more than 6 credits in general education still needed, and when all other nursing courses are complete. The nursing elective is the only nursing requirement that can be taken along with the capstone course.
