16. Sample sources and resource material Heading link

List all sources of information that are required for the course. Suggested or optional sources are not required. If there are no sources or resource material, please indicate this.

Sources of information might be textbooks, journal articles, films, lab manuals, newspapers, computer software, Internet sources, etc. Enter the titles, authors, and publication dates of books and the full names of periodicals and other resources. If you are using materials that are not current, explain why you’re using them in case concerns are raised during the review process.

  2. Assigned readings will be tailored to individual students’ research projects. They will involve current articles from the “Journal of Speech and Hearing Research” and other relevant periodicals.
  3. Selected current readings from the following journals: “Nursing Economics,” “Nursing Research,” “Research in Nursing and Health,” “Journal of Nursing Administration,” “Health Care Financing Review,” “Health Services Research,” and “Western Journal of Nursing Research.”

17. Prerequisites Heading link

The next four fields cover prerequisites, recommended background, corequisites, and restrictions. Units should consider these four types of critieria comprehensively and enter on the course request the requirements/preparation that students will need to progress smoothly through their academic programs.

Prerequisites should reflect a need for prior academic preparation. Usually a prerequisite is a course (e.g., BIOS 101) that may be taken prior to or concurrently with this course. However, a prerequisite may also be another type of preparation, such as a designated score on the mathematics placement test. For courses, enter the required prerequisite by course subject and course number. You may also enter minimum grades required in prior coursework, minimum class standing level, class restrictions, required consents or approvals,  placement test performance, and other criteria.
