Freshman students entering the 1+2+1 Nursing curriculum are required to complete one Learning Community comprised of two linked courses with a common theme. The linked courses are taken in the same term. The Research and Presentation requirement of the core is met by successful completion of NUR432 and 453. While students in this curriculum are not required to complete studies in each competency and core requirement, it is strongly recommended that students complete any elective credits taken at Daemen in courses which have a competency and that students select courses in as many of the competencies and other course requirements as possible, thereby enhancing their educational experience at Daemen.
