Minor: Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences

Summary of the Changes:
Students in other majors may select to minor in Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences as part of their overall program of study. The minor in Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences is recommended for those students who anticipate that their future career will involve working with physically active individuals in a health care setting. This minor is also recommended for students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in health care careers such as athletic training, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and exercise physiology. The emphasis of the minor is to provide the students with the basic concepts of the practical knowledge for clinical settings in health care, including clinical assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and the benefits of early identification in preventing injury and disease.
  Minor: Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences
  The minor is open to all UNF students. The minor requires 23 credit hours. A grade of "C" or better is required for all minor courses. Majors in Health Science may count a maximum of two courses (PET 3312C and PET 4625) towards the minor. Majors in Athletic Training may not pursue a minor in Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences.
  Prerequisites
  The prerequisites for the minor are BSC 2085C with Lab and BSC 2086C with Lab. Written permission from the Athletic Training Program Director is required to override this policy. Labs fees are included with most courses.
  Coursework
  Select five courses from the following:
  PET 3603C Introduction to Sports Medicine (3 cr hrs) (Fall)
  PET 3620 Introduction to Athletic Injuries (3 cr hrs) (Fall)
  PET 3312C Biomechanics (3 cr hrs) (Fall)
  PET 3621C Orthopedic Taping and Bracing (3 cr hrs) (Fall)
  *PET 3XXXC Gross Anatomy for Health Care Professionals (3 cr hrs) (Summer)
  PET 4630C Therapeutic Exercise (3 cr hrs) (Fall)
  *PET 3XXXC is a proposed course which is necessary for proper prosecution of cadaveric specimens and to achieve course and minor objectives. The summer term will allow access to the Cadaver Laboratory within the Department and an appropriate faculty-to-student ratio.

NGR 7850

Evidence-based Practice I

NGR 7850: Evidence-based Practice I is the foundation to the final DNP capstone project. The School of Nursing faculty believe the following prerequisite courses are necessary to successful engagement in NGR 7850:
  NGR 7797 Role Development in Advanced Practice Nursing
  NGR 7871 Health Informatics for Advanced Practice
  NGR 6673: Principles of Epidemiology for Advanced Practice OR HSC 6505 Epidemiology and Disease Control
  NGR 7843: Statistical Interpretation for Advanced Practice OR HSC 6512 Applied Health Statistics
  NGR 6892: Public Policy Implications for Advanced Practice OR HSA 6905 Health Policy

DNP

Summary of the Changes:
The School of Nursing faculty requests the following alternative courses be placed on the program of study for DNP students:
  NGR 6673: Principles of Epidemiology for Advanced Practice OR HSC 6505 Epidemiology         and Disease Control
  NGR 7843: Statistical Interpretation for Advanced Practice OR HSC 6512 Applied Health           Statistics
  NGR 6892: Public Policy Implications for Advanced Practice OR HSA 6905 Health Policy.
  This is being done to allow more flexibility for the DNP students in their program of study and      to facilitate more interdisciplinary interaction within the Brooks College of Health.
