Adult Health Nursing

This is the first of two courses centering on adult health nursing in the acute care setting. Adult Health Nursing I is the study of comprehensive complex nursing care aimed at promotion, restoration and maintenance of health in adults. The lecture portion of the course emphasizes the impact of health problems and the interaction of the environment and access on diverse urban adult populations. Students refine and expand their knowledge through the application of the nursing process and the integration of knowledge, concepts and theories from nursing, sciences, and general education courses. The focus is on nursing interventions for selected adult patients whose quality of life is affected by deviations from health. The clinical practicum occurs within acute care settings and provides the student with experience in content application, collaboration and critical thinking. In addition, students enhance their communication and teaching/learning skills by assuming a leadership role in the seminar portion of the course.
