The basic nursing curriculum consists of a planned progression of courses that build upon previous knowledge and develop skills at increasing levels of competence. The lower-division nursing and the science courses are prerequisite to the junior-level nursing courses. Throughout the curriculum, concepts relating to the promotion of health, care during illness, and long-term care are developed. Also emphasized are the nurse’s roles in research, advocacy, teaching, change, and management.
