NURS 84L
Medical/Surgical II (Care of the Older Adult) - Clinical


Course Description

Utilization of the nursing process within the framework of Orem's model of self-care in relation to the gerontologic client and the client with chronic self-care deficits. Emphasis is on the clinical nursing care of the older adult who is experiencing the normal process of aging as well as the older adult experiencing a health deviation. Clinical objectives are met through experiences in a variety of settings such as long-term care nursing facilities, medical-surgical units in acute care settings, adult community centers, and simulated laboratory settings. This course and its theory component (NURS 84) must be taken concurrently. Failure of either requires both to be retaken. Critical thinking and problem solving skills will be utilized in the application of theoretical concepts with consideration for the Registered Nurse's specific scope of practice
