Online Nursing Orientation

In the Online Nursing Orientation resource module you were introduced to our graduate nursing certification
success platform – the ‘3 Vs’ – ‘Vision, Value, Victory’. For those of you who also completed their graduate
nursing theory and research courses in our program additional information was conveyed about our
certification success framework.

students’ thoughts about the ‘value’ that each course in the program brings to movement toward certification
success. And ‘victory’ comes with success is achieved by success on planned certification exams.

One of the aims of the ‘3 Vs’ is to convey how ‘models’ thinking contributes to the development of your critical
decision making processes. Here we will apply the PDSA model to what may be an everyday circumstance.
Our goal, however, is that you gain an understanding of the value of models and come to see them as a part of
your everyday decision making rather than as nebulous ideology.
In this unit you will be reading about complementary, alternative and integrative health care approaches.
