NRS 222A - Acute Care II and End-of-Life Care
This course builds on Nursing in Acute Care I, focusing on more complex and/or unstable patient care situations, some of which require strong recognitional skills, rapid decision making, and some of which may result in death. The evidence base supporting appropriate focused assessments, and effective efficient nursing interventions is explored. Life span and developmental factors, cultural variables, and legal aspects of care frame the ethical decision-making employed in patient choices for treatment or palliative care within the acute care setting. Case scenarios incorporate prioritizing care needs, delegation and supervision, family and patient teaching for discharge planning or end-of-life care. Exemplars include acute psychiatric disorders, pregnancy-related complications, as well as acute conditions affecting multiple body systems.
