NUR 439 - Adult Health Nursing II

6 hours
The theoretical foundation of holistic nursing care for adults with acute and chronic illnesses and the application of that theory are the focus of this medical-surgical course. Clinical judgment and skills continue to improve by refining the nursing analysis of the patient’s history and symptom severity, establishing rationales and priorities for nursing and collaborative interventions, and evaluating the patient response to various treatment modalities. A variety of clinical areas and simulated clinical case scenarios provide the students with a diverse patient population in order to highlight evidence-based interventions. Students are expected to exhibit ethical, moral, spiritual, and professional behaviors. Prerequisite(s): Completion of Level 2 courses. CS
