Action Notice – MSN Nursing
MSN – Course changes and rationale
NUR 5515 -- Delete NUR 5510 as co-requisite. Originally,
we planned on offering the graduate nursing courses to a cohort
of students every two years, however, the response to our program
was so positive we start a new cohort each fall. Because of this
change, several students want to take one course at a time. Removing
co-requisites and prerequisites will allow them to do this.
NUR 5520 -- Delete NUR 5510 and NUR 5515 as prerequisites.
The content of NUR 5520 (Nursing Theories) is such that it does
not need a prerequisite. The content in both NUR 5510 and NUR 5515
has no direct relation to that of NUR 5520. All three are foundation
courses for the rest of the curriculum
NUR 5525 -- Delete NUR 5550 as a prerequisite; add NUR 5520
as a prerequisite.
NUR 5550 is now an elective so some students may not want to take
it. Students need to have the content from NUR 5520 (Nursing Theories)
before doing NUR 5525 where they are expected to apply nursing theories
as part of developing class for nursing students.
NUR 5530 -- Delete NUR 5550 as a prerequisite; add NUR 5525
as a prerequisite or co-requisite. NUR 5550 is now an elective
so some students may not want to take it. If students choose to
take one course per semester, they should have NUR 5525 before NUR
NUR 5545 – Add NUR 5520 as a prerequisite.
Students need to have NUR 5520 (Nursing Theories) before they can
develop a curriculum in NUR 5545 that is based on a nursing theorist.
