NUR320

Exploration of intermediate-level medical-surgical nursing care of adult patients exhibiting complex health needs. Critical-thinking activities interspersed throughout the course, as well as a focus on research and evidence-based nursing interventions provide the level of cognitive ability needed to function in the role of a baccalaureate-prepared nurse. Clinical experiences provide students with opportunities to apply theoretical concepts and to continue to develop organizational and time management nursing skills while providing care to a larger patient caseload with increasingly complex medical-surgical needs. 7 Credits (3 Lecture - 12 Clinical) Prerequisite(s): BIO201 and NUR330 and NUR340.
