NUR 21500 - Culturally Safe Nursing Practice 2: Critical Thinking and Evidence Evaluation


(3) In this course you will learn about the multifaceted nursing roles required for culturally safe professional nursing practice.  These roles include the nurse as advocate, teacher, caregiver, safeguard, and researcher, practicing in layers of cultural contexts.  You will learn about nursing and cultural concepts that you will encounter in your nursing practice from different cultural perspectives.  You will learn about nursing ethics, including an analysis of the ANA Code of Ethics, ethical decision-making processes, and how to establish and maintain appropriate professional boundaries. You will learn about the nurse as a part of the healthcare team and how to be effective in your roles on that team.  You will learn how integrate critical thinking principles and practices into the nursing process to support sound, ethical, effective clinical decision making.  We will discuss the current state of nursing’s story, the state of the scope of nursing practice in vastly different healthcare contexts, what is currently important to nurses and to nursing, and what is nursing’s story about our profession? We will have frank conversations about if that is what we want our story to be and what do we do if it’s not. We will take your spirit of inquiry and apply your literature review skills to evaluate health, wellness, illness and healing knowledge from the many ways of knowing – to help inform your culturally safe nursing practice.   Prerequisite: Admission to the ADN Program. Offered: Fall.
