About:

This course examines biostatistics and epidemiology for advanced evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing using an integrated application of statistics to basic epidemiological concepts. Students engage in the practical application of statistical concepts, quantitative methodology for advanced evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing, and statistical utility for decision-making using statistical analysis software to further examine the role of nursing practice related to disease and injury prevention. Additionally, students integrate decision theory and critical analysis through the evaluation of methods, results, and discussion sections of a research report. Competencies: Explain the function and role of biostatistics and epidemiology as independent and interrelated contributors for advanced evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing. Describe the purpose of research, the primary features of a research study, and the utility of statistics for decision making in advanced evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing. Apply foundational biostatistical methods to evaluate evidence-based data using statistical analysis software. Examine peer-reviewed research as a means to critically analyze, evaluate, and synthesize integrated topics in biostatistics and epidemiology.

This graduate-level course is 8 weeks To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
