Nursing faculty at UVU have identified four Domains of nursing practice that will best prepare our students for practice as registered nurses. Graduates who are able to actualize the identified domains of nursing will be prepared to provide safe and competent nursing care in today’s dynamic healthcare environment.

The curriculum and learning activities in the Department of Nursing strives to facilitate knowledge, skills, and abilities within each Domain.  The four Domains of nursing practice identified and defined by nursing faculty are:

PATIENT-CENTERED CARE
Includes holistic nursing and collaborative care for patients (e.g., individuals, families, groups, and communities) with the patient being at the center of nursing care.

INQUIRY AND REASONING
Includes sound clinical judgment and critical reflection and thinking; the ability to access, use, and/or generate information and apply evidence to practice.

ROLES AND COLLABORATION
Includes personal commitment to the profession of nursing values and roles and the ability to work collaboratively within healthcare organizations and interdisciplinary teams.

QUALITY AND SAFETY
Includes protecting patients from harm, using evidence to advance individual, group, and systematic processes to achieve outcomes.
