This course introduces the experienced healthcare worker to the functional and professional roles of the registered nurse. The course provides a study of the information, skills, and evidenced-based practices used to care for patients with homeostatic imbalances that affect biological systems and human dimensions. Clinical focus is on the development of the nurse-patient relationship, and mastery of skills for care of adults in acute care settings and the elderly in long-term care facilities. Clinical hours are completed through on-campus activities and at off-site clinical experiences in long-term care and other healthcare settings.
