Certificate of Completion (non-credit)


The Communication Skills for Nursing Students Certificate of Completion serves to remediate nursing students who have been identified as needing to acquire and apply evidence-based communication techniques, either through self-referral or by a nursing instructor. Effective communication is essential in today's healthcare setting for promoting inter-professional collaboration, teamwork, patient-centered care, and ultimately, the improvement of patient outcomes. Students learn the value of positive, effective communication in the healthcare setting and in their own lives. This program is a two-course certification that includes communication in all forms: verbal and nonverbal, reading, writing and listening.
