Complex Health Challenges Clinical

Course Description

The focus of this course is on the application of concepts learned in the theory class to the management of nursing care of critically ill clients experiencing complex health challenges and rapid changes in health status. Students will use nursing processes, research, problem-solving and critical thinking skills to facilitate culturally congruent care in acute care settings, within the framework of safe, patient-centered and evidence-based care. The learning experience will be enhanced with clinical simulation and observation activities. Both NURS 95L and NURS 95 must be taken and passed concurrently within the same quarter (failure of either component requires both courses to be retaken).
