Most hosta plants grow best in shady garden spots, in rich, moist soils. There are some that will tolerate sunshine but unless the plant was specifically labeled "sun tolerant" it's probably in the wrong spot in your garden. I would move the plant to a shadier spot and wait until it has established itself and is producing healthy new foliage. At that time you can prune off the browning leaves. Good luck with your hostas.
