NGC 632: Interpreting Health Care Policy

This course prepares graduate students to explore health care policymaking and its impact on health care at the institutional, local, state, and national levels. A historical context of health care in the US is used as the framework for critiquing and interpreting the social, legal, political, and economic factors which influence nursing practice. The students will then critically analyze and evaluate policies for impact on patients and clinical practice and thus develop leadership strategies to promote changes in health care policy that in turn could shape health care financing, regulation, and delivery.


NUS 697: Advanced Qualitative Research Methods

This research course focuses on designing grounded theory studies and applying the method to sampling, data collection and analysis. The method will be used and examined through in-class large and small group discussion and hands-on grounded theory data analysis. Exemplar published studies that used the grounded theory method will be critiqued.


NUS 706: Psycho-Social Measurement & Questionnaire Construction

This course focuses on psychometric theory and its applications in health and behavioral sciences. Content includes scaling methods, in depth evaluation of the reliability and validity of an instrument, factor analysis (exploratory and confirmatory), and construction of survey questionnaires, traditional tests and attitudinal rating scales.

Courses are available through NEXus and the application is open until August 18th.
