NURS 423 - Perspectives in Nursing Science


3 Credits
This course takes a critical social view of the evolution and nature of Nursing science with an eye toward identifying bias in Nursing models and theories. Emphasis is placed on scholarly endeavors that reflect a willingness to challenge established patterns of thought. Personal philosophies of Nursing are written to identify personal values, beliefs and cultural practices related to health care that may interfere with acceptance of different cultural practices and beliefs. Students are introduced to the cultural theories of Campinha-Bacote, Giger and Davidhizers, and Leininger. Students choose one that will guide their practice. Using the theoretical framework chosen, students will conduct a concept analysis related to a cultural issue in health care.
