This course emphasizes the development of nursing skills in the promotion of health and healing when caring for individuals who require acute nursing interventions. Building on the theory and practice from previous terms, a nursing process approach to the management of care is reinforced while integrating new knowledge and technical skills relevant in an acute setting. The focus is on performing accurate comprehensive nursing assessments and using the nursing process to determine care for clients requiring acute care across the lifespan. Opportunities for client teaching and learning are stressed. The laboratory setting as well as the hospital setting provides the opportunity for integration of theory to practice.
This course is part of the full-time Nursing (BScN) Year 1 Entry Program.
