Adult Gerontological Health Acute Care Nursing II

This course builds on A/G Health Acute Care Nursing I and continues addressing the patient sphere of influence while adding the patient/family focus to include the nursing practice and systems sphere of influence. A focus on high-incidence clinical problems, symptoms or issues in adult and gerontological health and acute and critical care continues. Diversity, health care disparities, and ethical issues will be discussed as they relate to the clinical topics. Students deepen their knowledge of adult and gerontological health and acute and critical care from interdisciplinary empirical and theoretical literature and other sources of evidence. Emphasis is placed on synthesizing knowledge from a variety of sources to make clinical judgments and to build the practice base needed for implementing other advanced practice competencies. Knowledge of assessment, diagnosis, and management in the autonomous nursing domain, and measurement of relevant, nursing-sensitive patient outcomes and quality improvement approaches to improving care for populations will be emphasized.
