NUR* H225 - Nursing in Health & Illness IV


Credits: 8
This course is designed to further develop concepts of nursing practice introduced in Nursing in Health & Illness I, II & III. Students apply learning related to pathophysiology, pharmacology, medical, and alternative therapies in classroom, laboratory and clinical settings throughout the course. This course focuses upon the holistic nursing and inter-professional management and coordination of care for patients, families, groups and communities with a variety of complex health care needs across the lifespan. Emphasis is placed on the related organizational skills of the nurse as a member of the inter-professional healthcare team. Learning experiences provide the student an opportunity to demonstrate clinical judgment as course concepts are applied in the implementation of safe, patient-centered care in a variety of settings using the nursing process. In addition, a portion of clinical experiences within this course provide the student with the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge skills and attitudes (KSAs) that reflect awareness of the leadership and management roles of the nurse as a member of the inter-professional healthcare team. Active learning strategies are employed in this course to promote the development of clinical reasoning and self-directed lifelong learning.
