NUR 370 - Theory for Clinical Practice

This course focuses on the nursing profession and the process of knowledge development within the profession. The intent is to provide participants with opportunities to explore the processes of inquiry in nursing. Participants will have opportunities to explore various modes of nursing inquiry, including scientific, philosophical, and historical. Praxis, or the development of knowledge through the cycle of acquiring experience, reflecting on experience, and enhancing practice is central to understanding what influences nursing. Relationships between practice, theory, and research are explored. Four foundational concepts: personal meaning, ways of knowing, time/transitions, and context/culture serve to focus critical reflections in this course. In recognizing multiple ways of developing knowledge, participants have the opportunity to explore how practice may differ within varying perspectives.
