NUR 21000 - Culturally Safe Nursing Practice 1: Introduction to Concepts & Theory


(3) In this course you will learn the skills of self-awareness; in particular, what you need to learn about yourself so that you can be open to the possibilities, wonders and depths of your nursing experiences and so that you can be culturally safe with the people you will encounter on your nursing journey.  In this course we hope to spark in you a spirit of inquiry, the desire to want to know, and we’ll teach you how to ask questions in a way that will lead you to important, if not sometimes unexpected, answers.  This course will help you to learn to think about your thinking and will introduce and help you to integrate critical thinking principles and processes into your daily practice.  In this course we will discover how do we tell our stories, what do we pay attention to, how do we connect the details, what does this tell us about what happened and what decisions do we make about ourselves, others, nursing, healthcare, groups, communities, and life, and how does this impact our unique human story.  We will take this awareness and apply the process as we learn together about the cultural stories of nursing, healthcare, and Alaskan peoples and communities, and discover how do these stories impact aspects of your nursing story. Prerequisite: Admission to the ADN Program. Offered: Fall.
