NUR 483: Nursing Capstone: The capstone course is a culmination of the learning experiences and is designed to synthesize all of the knowledge gained during the curriculum and apply this to a strategic change opportunity. Students will use leadership and change theories to develop a project proposal with a focus on the resolution of an issue or problem significant to professional nursing practice and/or healthcare outcomes. The student will work with a mentor, typically at their place of employment, to implement the project. The student will also develop a professional portfolio which will include a collection of individual work samples illustrating the student's competencies related to individual student learning outcomes and reflect upon their individual learning process.
