Theory and Practice in Adult Nursing
Units: 6 (2/4) Parentheses indicate theory units/clinical units.
Critical concepts in the care of selected adult-client populations are studied. Evidence-based nursing is practiced within a specialty that results in competencies to (a) expand the boundaries of nursing practice by focusing on illness management, (b) advance the practice of other nurses and nursing personnel, and (c) develop organizational/system modifications to support and improve the practice of nursing. Client populations may be selected from the areas of critical care, adult medical-surgical, or gerontology with the instructor's consent. Prerequisites: Academic Core and Advanced Practice Core courses, current RN license, CPR certificate, malpractice insurance, and fulfilled health screening requirements
