The Nursing Success Seminar course facilitates students’ success in the nursing program and the nursing profession by introducing concepts basic to nursing education and practice. Learning activities help students develop study, test-taking and time management skills. Students learn about the history of the nursing profession and issues facing nurses, including legal and ethical issues in today’s healthcare climate. Discussions focus on the different levels of nursing education as well as the roles, responsibilities and professional opportunities associated with each level. The course introduces students to theories and conceptual frameworks used to support nursing practice. Students examine the New Hampshire Nurse Practice Acts and discuss legal and ethical issues in nursing practice. The course introduces students to the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX) for registered nurses test plan in reference to the program of study at White Mountains Community College’s nursing program.
