The Adult Health Nursing course will allow the student to advance from basic nursing care to pathophysiology based nursing care, including refinement of assessment skills, nursing diagnoses, planning, implementation and evaluation. Using theoretical knowledge of health promotion, illness and disease management, and risk reduction, the student will identify and prioritize professional nursing care appropriate for a broad population of culturally diverse adult patients. Professional standards will be incorporated into the plan of care. The course builds upon knowledge of the sciences and humanities gained from previous classes, especially anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology and basic foundational nursing care. Prerequisites: NURS 2351, 2362, 2372; HLSC 3409, 3410. Corequisite: BIOM 3115, NURS 3362, and 3372.
