NUR 1035 Health and Illness Concepts of the Adult

NUR 1035 builds upon the Nurse of the Future Nursing Core Competencies (NOFNCC) and concepts related to the domains of Health and Illness, Nursing and Healthcare previously introduced throughout your Practical Nursing program. Selected concepts with exemplars focus on the care of the adult. Health and Illness concepts are expanded to further develop clinical judgment when caring for the adult. Nutrition and principles of pharmacology are integrated. Concepts related to the role transition and scope of practice from LPN to the RN will be addressed. Opportunities are provided for students to learn, practice, and achieve competencies using concept-based skills in lab, simulation, and the clinical setting. The equivalent of 1.0 credit (15 hours) Pharmacological connections are included as an online component of this course. Includes 12 hours of clinical/skills laboratory, 6 hours classroom theory, and 1 hour online theory each week.
