Relational Practice IEN PN
The course helps Practical Nursing students strengthen their relational practice in the context of Canadian nursing and health care. Through nursing knowledge, this course will focus on understanding the relationships of practicing nurses with clients, other healthcare providers, and the self. Students will explore how personal beliefs and experiences impact their practice and interactions with clients. In contrast, students will also explore how nursing impacts the self through the concepts of self-care, reflection, and conflict management. To gain an appreciation for Canadian culture, students will also be introduced to nursing ethics, seminal Canadian health policy, safety standards for the clinical setting, and the values embedded in Canadian society.
