This course is designed to assist with the transition of the practicing LPN into the BSN role. Similarities and differences of the two professional groups will be studied and learners will expand on existing theoretical and practical knowledge of all aspects of professional practice. The interrelationship of research, theory, philosophy and practice is examined. Learners will be introduced to frameworks which will assist the LPN through the change of attitudes and beliefs necessary for a LPN to BSN role transition. Common transitions such as health/illness, developmental, organizational transitions and culturally safe care will be examined in the context of current LPN practice and new BSN perspectives.
