Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing (Theory)

Course Description

Utilization of the nursing process in learning to meet clients' self-care deficits, with an emphasis on the biopsychosocial needs of individuals across the life span who experience acute or severe psychopathology. Theories of psychiatric/mental health nursing will be taught in concert with nursing care of individuals undergoing treatment in a variety of behavioral healthcare settings. Theory and clinical components must be taken concurrently. Failure of either component requires both courses to be retaken.
