Curriculum & Courses

The curriculum of the Master's Entry to Practice program focuses on medical knowledge, nursing theory, continuous quality improvement, shared fiscal responsibilities, and technology integration.

The organizing structure of the nursing program is composed on the theory of emotional intelligence (Goleman, 2015) and the Essentials: Core Competencies for Professional Nursing Education from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN, 2021).

Emotional intelligence is defined by Goleman (1998) as the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves, and our relationships.
