Competencies for Contemporary Nursing Practice
As Phase III of the program, the course Competencies for Contemporary Nursing Practice is designed for students to apply competencies for contemporary nursing practice. Safety, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, leadership and delegation, informatics, and professional role development are studied. Students will engage in weekly, faculty-facilitated virtual clinical experiences while caring for clients in a variety of care settings, across the lifespan. Satisfactory application of competencies in the virtual clinical experience is required to pass the course.
You’ll become eligible to take Competencies for Contemporary Nursing Practice when you’ve successfully completed all 8 of the nursing courses, submitted a new Verification of Health Care Experience (VHCE) form, and when you’ve completed 21 of the 31 required general education credits. The VHCE form expires 3 months after the date of your supervisor’s signature. You should consult with the academic advising team regarding the VHCE form.
