Undergraduate Nursing Capstone

The Capstone Course is a clinical practicum focused on refining your clinical and leadership skills. The Capstone experience will help you enhance your patient management with multiple clients in a "real world setting."

Advantages to students:
  • Clinical skill development.
  • Improve practical clinical experience with identified leadership staff.
  • Improve your decision-making skills in the clinical setting.
  • Enhance knowledge of theory principles as applied to patient outcomes in real settings.
  • Improve your confidence to pass the N-CLEX exam and enter the job force.
  • Improve marketability to area specialty employers.
