Medical-Surgical Nursing

Course Description

This course builds on prior learning experiences to developing knowledge and skills used in management of nursing care of patients experiencing chronic and acute health care stressors. It integrates the knowledge of pathophysiology, diagnostics, pharmacology, communication concepts and therapeutic interventions in order to facilitate culturally congruent nursing care for patients with fluid and electrolyte imbalances, pre and post-surgical acute care needs, as well as a variety of other disease processes. Students will become increasingly competent in the application of nursing process, research, problem-solving and use of clinical judgment within the framework of safe patient-centered, evidence-based care. Both NURS 92 and NURS 92L must be taken and passed concurrently within the same quarter (failure of either component requires both courses to be retaken).
