Nursing IV (10)

Prerequisite: NUR 1830 and NUR 2732C

Classification: Occupational

Nursing IV builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in Nursing I, Nursing II and III. Students learn to apply the nursing process in providing all levels of prevention to diverse clients across the life span and their support systems, and who are experiencing responses affecting their abilities to meet complex needs for fluid and electrolytes, oxygen and/or perception/mobility. Students focus on commonly occurring responses to stressors and the interaction of problems in these need areas. Students provide care in community and acute care facilities for pediatric and adult clients. Clinical application of learning accomplished in the Socialization into Nursing courses will be evaluated as part of the clinical component of Nursing IV. In the transition from student to graduate nurse, students use the nursing process to manage care for selected groups of clients. Upon successful completion of this course the student is eligible to apply for licensure as a registered nurse and to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. (6 hours of class for 13 weeks and 14 hours of clinical lab per week except 72 hours in the last two weeks)
