Section Description

This course for RN-BS students is designed to follow PRNU 241, Public Health, but if taken out of sequence, it builds on population-focused nursing and on nursing's professional commitment to social justice. We will examine the code of ethics and the philosophical foundations of social justice in nursing and more generally in society. While we will focus attention on vulnerable populations in society, our emphasis will not be so much on disparities as on policies that reinforce or minimize disparities and on what health care professionals can do to improve the well-being of people who are often marginalized in our society. Final emphasis will be on leadership and keeping ourselves informed as well as strong advocates for policies and practices that promote social justice.

Section Expectation

It is expected that students will be fully engaged in Blackboard learning activities, and other aspects of the course. Readings and activities form the foundation for comments on Blackboard and responses to the comments from peers. Specific objectives will be added.

Evaluation

This course will be conducted entirely online in a six-week period of time, thus, keeping up with course expectations and completing assignments on time is very important. 1. Critical reading: Each week you will have a module to complete, consisting of readings, websites, presentations, and sometimes movies. You are to write responses to the work assigned and post these on Tuesday and Thursdays. You must respond to two other postings each week with substantive responses using evidence and professional literature. 2. You are to keep a reflective journal and record in it at least every other day about what you are seeing/experiencing at work or in public or other settings that relates to social justice. 3. Your final assignment will be to create a personal essay about nursing using material from texts, readings, pictures, your journal and other materials that demonstrates what you have learned about social justice, the nursing profession's role in promoting it, and how you will demonstrate leadership in advocacy in your future career.
