Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing
This course builds on prior learning experiences to develop knowledge and skills used in the management of nursing care of patients experiencing psychiatric and mental health challenges. The course integrates the knowledge of pathophysiology, diagnostics, pharmacology, communication concepts, and therapeutic interventions in order to facilitate culturally congruent nursing care for patients with complex variations in psychiatric health patterns. Students will become increasingly competent in the application of nursing processes, research, problem-solving and the use of clinical judgment within the framework of safe, patient-centered, evidence-based care. Both NURS 94A and NURS 94AL must be taken and passed concurrently within the same quarter (failure of either component requires both courses to be retaken).
