PN 102A - Practical Nursing 2
This course is the second of three terms in the Practical Nursing Program. This course introduces pathophysiological processes that contribute to many different disease states across the lifespan and human responses to those processes. Content continues the application of the nursing process and pharmacological therapies of patients within the practical nursing scope of practice in selected medical-surgical areas. These areas include care of patients with immunological, hematological, neurological, visual/auditory, cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, and renal disorders. Fluid and electrolyte balance and pain management techniques are also included in this course. Cultural, ethical, and health care delivery issues are explored through case scenarios with the application of the nursing process to chronic illness care. Students will learn to make critical thinking-based clinical decisions in the context of nursing by selecting and interpreting focused nursing assessments based on knowledge of pathophysiological processes.
