NUR 102 - Nursing II

( 4 :2 :0 ) 8 credits

This course focuses on utilization of the nursing process with special emphasis on planning and implementation when caring for adults with commonly occurring health-care needs. Emphasis is placed on meeting the physiological and psycho-social needs of adults in today’s changing health-care system. Concepts and principles from nursing, the sciences, and liberal arts provide the rationale for nursing interventions. The role of care provider is refined with special emphasis on communication skills. The influence of illness on the client’s ability to meet normal developmental tasks is considered. Students assess the impact of cultural and ethnic beliefs and economic patterns on the client’s response to health and illness. Ethical and legal issues are explored. Nursing skills and procedures are demonstrated, practiced and tested in the college laboratory before they are assigned in the clinical setting.
