Courses

Introduction to concepts related to common physiologic alterations and influences of genetics and genomics on disease development. Building upon science and math courses while integrating and threading concepts introduced in introductory nursing courses, this course illustrates resulting human adaptation processes to expand student critical thinking and judgment for patient care. Pharmacologic concepts and applications to associated alterations are integrated as applicable to physiologic processes throughout the course.

This course builds upon previous knowledge and skills related to common adult health needs, reinforcing the continued development of the professional nurse as a provider of patient-centered care, patient safety advocate, member of the health care team and member of the profession.

The purpose of this experiential course is to apply all curricular nursing concepts, using clinical judgment at the highest levels of Bloom's taxonomy to develop the generalist nurse.
