Concurrent enrollment in or completion of BIOL 203. Adult, child, and infant CPR certification required prior to clinical. This course provides the foundation upon which all nursing courses are built. The student will learn the fundamental principles of interpersonal, technical and cognitive skills related to individualized client care of an adult's basic human needs. Learning activities are planned to develop the student's ability to think critically, to reason and form judgments, and to assess, analyze and resolve client-centered problems. The roles of the nurse as provider of care, manager of care and member of the profession are introduced. Clinical experiences are correlated with theory by selection of clients in subacute and long term care settings. The student is expected to demonstrate competency of selected nursing skills in the Nursing Lab. Four class hours and twelve clinical laboratory hours weekly.
