This course in medical-surgical nursing focuses on clients with acute alterations in oxygenation, perfusion, nutrition and sexuality. Critical thinking pathways will be applied holistically utilizing Orem’s self-care model when caring for individuals with acute health problems. Campus laboratory experiences allow the student to practice more complex psychomotor skills. Planned faculty-supervised experiences in acute care facilities provide the student the opportunity to implement a more sophisticated knowledge base and skill level. The students also plan and deliver a supervised group health teaching project in the community. Clinical experiences are complemented by observational experiences in specialty areas.
