HERITAGE FAMILY ASSESSMENT
The RN to BSN program at Grand Canyon University meets the requirements for clinical competencies as defined by CCNE and AACN using nontraditional experiences for practicing nurses. These experiences come in the form of direct and indirect care experiences in which licensed nursing students engage in learning within the context of their hospital organization, their specific care discipline, and their local communities.
The learning activity and corresponding assignment in this topic requires students to perform a heritage assessment with families selected by the student from their local community.
