NUR 449 - Adult Health Nursing III

4 hours
The theoretical foundation of holistic nursing care for adults with acute and complex multi-system dysfunction and the application of that theory are the focus of this advanced medical-surgical course. Clinical judgment and skills are synthesized by further 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 simulated clinical case scenarios expose the students to patients experiencing end-of-life symptom severity, co-morbidities, and complications in order to highlight evidence-based interventions. Students are expected to exhibit ethical, moral, spiritual, and professional behaviors. Prerequisite(s): Completion of Level 3 courses. Corequisite(s): NUR 478 . CS
