Description

Introduces community–based nursing care of individuals and families, care of the critically ill patient, as well as maternal child care of the high-risk patient. The nursing curriculum continues to expand on the role of the registered nurse to promote critical thinking and clinical decision-making. Students further develop their skills in patient teaching, patient care planning, and management. A simulation experience allows the students to manage the care of a patient through multiple stages of an illness using a team approach. The clinical practicum focuses on mastering the nursing process to provide and direct holistic and individualized patient care to increasingly complex patients. Students are provided additional experiences in the community-based and mental health settings. Fifth term of the nursing degree, second term of the registered nurse sequence.
