NUR 2020 Nursing III

Concepts based on the 3 domains of health & illness, nursing and healthcare, and Massachusetts Nurse of the Future Nursing Core Competencies (NOFNCC) continue as the theoretical and conceptual framework. This course will build upon previously acquired nursing knowledge, skills, and abilities, in order to integrate concepts of leadership and manager of care for multiple clients with complex health care needs. Psychiatric/mental health topics will focus on more complex psychiatric disorders and further development of therapeutic relationships with the client and family. Components of pharmacology and nutrition continue to be integrated in this course. Clinical learning experiences will take place in select acute care settings where students will perform the task of Team Leader to demonstrate the leadership and manager of care principles. This experience will include prioritizing care, delegation, and conflict resolution. In this course the learner will be encouraged to utilize more independent critical thinking and decision making skills in order to formulate nursing judgments in preparation for professional clinical practice. Contemporary issues and trends impacting the nursing profession will also be addressed. Includes 15 hours of clinical/skills laboratory and 5 hours of theory each week. *All General Education courses have to be completed prior to or concurrent with NUR 2020*
