This course introduces nursing as a profession and the nurse's role as a collaborative member of the healthcare team. The course surveys the necessary requirements in providing safe, competent, holistic, and evidenced-based care, and fosters the development of a professional identity in the student nurse. The course provides information and skills that are essential in caring for older adult patients with imbalances in homeostasis that affect biological systems as well as human dimensions. The learner is introduced to common health problems that are likely to result in chronic illness in the older-adult population. Clinical hours are completed through a combination of on-campus activities, and off-site clinical experiences in long-term care and other healthcare settings.
