Complex Health Challenges

Course Description

This course builds on prior learning experiences to develop knowledge and skills used in the management of nursing care of patients experiencing complex health challenges and rapid changes in health status. It also integrates the knowledge of pathophysiology, diagnostics, pharmacology, communication concepts, and therapeutic interventions in order to facilitate culturally congruent nursing care for patients with complex variations in health patterns. Students will become increasingly competent in the application of nursing processes, research, problem-solving and use of clinical judgment. Both NURS 95 and NURS 95L must be taken and passed concurrently within the same quarter (failure of either component requires both courses to be retaken).
