Concepts of pathophysiology will serve as a basis of building an understanding of pharmacokinetics. Legal and ethical issues and safety principles will be stressed as an integral part of nursing practice. The nurses' scope of practice, critical thinking and problem solving in medication administration processes will be examined.
