College of Nursing

Credit(s): 3

This course was created for the RN-BSN track. Professional Communication in Professional Nursing will cover a variety of ways in which professional nurses communicate with their patients, their interprofessional colleagues, their nursing peers, and the community at- large. In this course, students will demonstrate effective communication with their nursing peers through discussion boards on a variety of topics such as cultural competence and diversity, health literacy, and collaboration among teams. They will demonstrate effective communication with patients and/or families through the development and presentation of a patient education plan and handout. In addition, students will contrast effective and ineffective communication among a team of interprofessional colleagues using a real world example from their practice and provide a plan to improve communication for the team. Finally, students will demonstrate effective communication with the community at-large through a written paper that will satisfy, in part, the graduate composition and communication requirement (GCCR). This 1500 word paper will include an exploration of a professional nursing issue, a brief review of literature related to the issue, and a brief discussion of the issue s impact on nursing practice. The paper will require multiple drafts and peer/faculty review before submission of the final paper.
