Two (2) days every week are spent in adult clients situations. As a member of the health care team, students implement the nursing process and practice nursing procedures taught in courses 162 and 242.
This course of correlated theory, laboratory, and clinical practice is planned to present principles and therapeutic skills of nursing care, based on the nursing process that builds on course 162.
Anatomy and Physiology II is a continuation of Anatomy and Physiology I. The normal structure and function in the adult of the endocrine, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, and reproductive systems are presented. Anatomical and physiological processes and the need to maintain homeostasis are continued.
This course presents major classifications of pharmacologic agents with prototype drugs in each class, as well as their actions, uses, side effects, dosages, and nursing interventions. The nursing process is presented as it applies to the study and administration of drugs.
This course is designed to assist the student in applying the nursing process to the common health problems associated with the immune, integumentary, musculoskeletal, respiratory, sensory, urinary, and gastrointestinal systems. Basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology is expanded to include the disease process, symptoms, nursing care, and treatments that are necessary to assess and meet the needs of the medical-surgical client. An attempt is made to correlate class presentation with the twelve weeks of planned clinical experience in the medical-surgical areas.
