Information for Potential Nursing Students
Information for Current Nursing Students
This announcement is to inform you that Florence-Darlington Technical College's Nursing Department has updated the organizing framework for the Associate Degree Nursing Program and the LPN to ADN Transition Program. This change was imperative to bring the curriculum up to current status of the health care environment with data adapted from the National League for Nursing (NLN) Education Competencies Model (2010) and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN). The new education model is enclosed. The new concepts that are threaded throughout the curriculum are Human Flourishing, Nursing Judgment, Spirit of Inquiry, and Professional Identity and they replace the old concepts of Caring, Communication, Critical Thinking, Teaching and Learning, and Professional Behavior.
The new Program Student Learning Outcomes are:
Upon completion of the Associate Degree Nursing Program the graduate will:
- Human Flourishing
Advocate for patients, families, and groups in the provision of patient-centered care.
- Nursing Judgment
Make evidenced-based nursing judgments in the provision of safe, quality care for patients, families, and groups.
- Spirit of Inquiry
Examine the evidence that underlies clinical nursing practice to improve the quality of care for patients, families, and groups
- Professional Identity
Demonstrate the professional role of a nurse within nursing and inter-professional teams utilizing open communication and collaboration and an evolving professional identity.
The implementation is planned for the Spring Semester (2014) and will include new and current student populations. For further information, please contact Sharon Stafford at 843.661.8179 or email@example.com.
