Nursing | Learning Through service & Exploring Careers in Nursing
K492 | 8518 | D. Wellman

Open to all students interested in nursing. Students will identify
multiple career paths for the practicing registered nurse, explore
the roles of the practicing registered nurse, distinguish across
career paths the responsibilities relevant to the practicing
registered nurse, explain different economic factors that impact
nursing, and explore the issues that face nurses today. The optional
(recommended!) service learning section serves to introduce pre-
nursing students to the service responsibilities of the nursing
profession. Students will be given the opportunity to participate in
15 hours of community service and will complete a journal documenting
their experiences. Service projects will be individually arranged.
This course (with or without the 1 credit of service learning) may be
counted toward the School of Nursing Social Competence general
education cluster.
