Directed Leadership Practicum

NURS 967

This course is a leadership-directed practicum, and consists of 60 clock hours of practicum experience. Students develop a practicum plan and engage in practicum activities as approved by faculty. This course is designed for Doctor of Nursing Practice students in the Executive Leadership track to fulfill their practicum requirements.

Note: Completion of the DNP requires completion of 1,000 hours of practicum. Every student is evaluated for up to a potential 500 contact hours in transfer, based reflection of practicum hours already completed and included in transcript (and sometimes syllabus request to student to enable accurate assignment of credit). For those students with a clinical master’s degree, it is likely that there are easily 500 hours to transfer. For those students with a non-clinical master’s, the number of practicum hours is generally less. This course is designed to add 60 contact hours and can be repeated as needed to meet the total number of practicum contact hours required.
