This course focuses on the role of the nurse in providing safe, competent, holistic, and evidence-based care for adult patients with increasingly complex pathophysiological imbalance in homeostasis and the resultant unmet physical and psychosocial needs. Focus is placed on complex interventions to assist patients to promote, maintain, and restore homeostasis, with an emphasis on common health problems that are more likely to result in acute illness and/or surgical interventions. The course provides a study of interventions used to assist patients to regain optimal health, as well as those that relate to problems of adjustment and deviant patterns of behavior. Clinical hours are completed through a combination of on-campus activities and off-site clinical experiences, primarily in acute care facilities.
