NUR 4103 - Adult Health Nursing II

Credits: 10 hrs
This course builds upon concepts, principles, and skills presented in NUR 3102. Emphasis is on utilizing the nursing process in meeting the needs of adult clients with complex health alterations in: oxygenation of body cells, fluid and electrolyte balance, digestive and metabolic functions, neuro-sensory perceptual functions, mobility and coordination, immunity, cellular growth and integrity, and sexual and reproductive functions. This course also expands the student’s knowledge of major drug classifications and the nurse’s responsibility in the therapeutic use of drugs in adults with complex illnesses. Clinical experiences are planned to allow observational activities, implementation of the nursing process, including patient teaching. Nursing roles assume a greater dimension as students gain experiences through observation and caring for clients at more critical levels of the health and illness continuum.
Pre-requisite(s): Completion of junior level nursing courses.
