The evidence-based nursing (EBN) program focuses on developing advanced generalist nursing practice in a focused area of study, promoting interdisciplinary collaboration, fostering life-long learning and preparing students for the leading edge of healthcare knowledge and delivery. Students strengthen their knowledge and skills in clinical decision-making, application of nursing interventions and ability to critique and appropriately use evidence as a foundation for practice. In this track, students study nursing as an applied discipline advancing their knowledge of theoretical perspectives for clinical practice, with an emphasis on leadership, the cultural, social and political context of health and illness, and quality improvement methodologies. Students are mentored in the enactment of leadership strategies to improve quality care in nursing practice through a 112-hour clinical practicum.
At UNH you’ll be supported by a productive faculty and outstanding facilities as you advance your nursing career. Faculty members conduct research in family-based health issues such as women’s health, health promotion for children and adolescents, and nursing care for the elderly. Clinical practicum sites are by arrangement in local, regional and teaching hospitals, clinics, community health agencies, primary care and other urban and rural healthcare settings in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and other sites by permission.
