NM 335 - Designing and Managing Nursing Care


This is the first course in the management/leadership sequence of two courses (followed by Leadership and Issues in Nursing). This course focuses on the professional nurse’s role in planning and managing care for groups of clients as a staff nurse or unit manager. The second course will focus on nursing leadership at a higher level with discussion of influences beyond the healthcare facility. As healthcare providers who function autonomously and interdependently, nurses are responsible for professional identity and practice and must develop expertise in supervising, managing, and delegating nursing care within the policies and procedures of a health system. Fiscal management is an important part of this course. Additionally, the management of information and ability to assist patients in utilizing information is emphasized.
