NURS 301RN Health Assessment and Promotion for Nursing Practice 4 sem. hrs.
The major focus of this course is nursing health assessment with emphasis on adult clients as they adapt to stressors in the internal and external environment. The student will use various clinical assessment tools to enhance assessment skills used with health history-taking methods, physical examination skills, and health promotion techniques. Critical thinking skills and communication principles will be exercised as the student uses a general systems theory framework and nursing process to gather biological, psychological, spiritual, and cultural data upon which therapeutic nursing intervention can be planned. Knowledge of the sciences and liberal arts will form the basis for the effective collection and analysis of client information. Focus will be placed on nursing accountability and responsibility as the student applies nursing theory within various health care settings that will serve to maintain, restore or reorganize health or to support death with dignity. Computer informatics will be used as a source of current information concerning health assessments and as a medium for documentation. Prerequisite: NURS 300RN. Offered twice a year.
