NURS 5340 - Adult Health Nursing II (4)


This four credit course involves the practice base theory for advanced nursing with acutely ill clients. Acute care nursing requires a thorough understanding of the relatedness of the body systems, including the reciprocal relationship between the physiologic, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of the person, as well as an understanding of the dynamic nature of the life process. With advances in biomedical technology, diagnostic procedures, and clinical therapeutics, patients are treated in complex clinical settings. The course prepares competent nurses by requiring a broad knowledge base, decision-making skills, and a commitment to nursing’s ethical and professional values. Prerequisite(s): NURS 5320 , NURS 5230 , and NURS 5250 . Four hours of independent study per week.
