Prereqs: NUR 326,327; Co-req NUR 337; Nursing Majors Only
Focuses on integrating prior knowledge, using scholarly inquiry, and designing therapeutic nursing interventions to promote health and manage illness in children from infancy through adolescence in partnership with their families. Emphasis is placed on applying knowledge of growth and development and health issues of children to plan and evaluate family centered nursing care that maximizes the health of children in a caring environment. Ethical, legal, cultural and advocacy concepts are explored. The ANA Standards of Care for the Pediatric Nurse (1996) and ANA Maternal Child Health Standards and the objectives of Healthy People 2010 that pertain to children and families provide the framework for constructing evidenced- based contemporary nursing care for children and families.
