Gerontology Nursing

Course Description

This course builds on prior learning experiences to develop knowledge and skills used in the management of nursing care of older adult patients experiencing complex health challenges and chronic changes in health status. 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 acute and chronic variations in health patterns. Students will become increasingly competent in the application of nursing process, research, problem-solving and the use of clinical judgment within the framework of safe patient-centered, evidence-based care. Both NURS 94 and NURS 94L must be taken and passed concurrently within the same quarter (failure of either component requires both courses to be retaken).
