Nursing Care of Adults II

NUR175

Continuation of the systems approach with discussion of the more complex medical-surgical disorders and their effect on adult clients. Focus on co-morbidity and polypharmacology in the geriatric population. Mental health concepts are addressed, as well as issues and trends in nursing practice. Clinical rotations are planned to support these specialties. Greater independence in initiating all phases of the nursing process, incorporating health teaching, and identifying referral sources is evaluated during clinical rotations. Building on and transferring theoretical knowledge from the classroom to the clinical area is paramount to progress through this course.
