Nursing IIB (5)

Prerequisite: NUR 1210C

Corequisite: NUR 1012

Classification: Occupational

Nursing IIB builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in Nursing I and IIA. In this course, students learn about holistic health care across the life span and the application of the nursing process to diverse clients needing primary prevention and those whose normal lines of defense have been invaded to the extent that secondary and tertiary preventions are necessary. Faculty design learning experiences to assist students to identify stressors and commonly occurring responses to stressors affecting the clients' abilities to meet needs for psychological safety, self-esteem and/or love and belonging, oxygen, nutrition and elimination. Through laboratory and clinical experiences, students continue to develop assessment and intervention skills with emphasis on primary prevention for the well child and secondary preventions for the adult client. Students learn additional skills and provide care in ambulatory pediatric, community, psychiatric and acute care facilities. (average of 11 class and clinical hours per week, but hours per week will vary)
