Nursing skills and procedures are demonstrated, practiced, and tested in the college laboratory before being assigned in the clinical setting. In the role of care manager, students focus on restorative and rehabilitative measures. The impact of cultural and ethnic beliefs and economic patterns on long-term illness is explored.
