The emphasis of graduate education is on the development of scholarly critical thinkers with the ability to translate knowledge into practice. Through the process of critical inquiry, students learn to understand the nature of complex human and environmental systems and to develop strategies for effective intervention. Research concepts and skills are subsets of critical inquiry and are considered integral to the roles of nurse practitioner, nursing administrator, nurse educator and the emergency-disaster nurse manager. The master’s curriculum is designed to provide the knowledge base and experience needed to evaluate research designs and methodologies and utilize research findings.
Members of the faculty assume that each student has the potential to be self-directed and the curriculum is structured to maximize student independence, personal development, professional accountability, and continuous learning.
