NUR 1006C Transitions to Nursing Concepts

This course is designed for paramedics entering the associate degree nursing program and expands upon knowledge and skills obtained in previous healthcare courses.  In Transition to Nursing Concepts, students gain beginning knowledge about associate degree nursing using a holistic, evidence-based approach. Students learn about holistic health care and application of the nursing process to clients and families focusing on concepts of fluid and electrolytes, metabolism, oxygenation, perfusion, infection, culture, and comfort – specifically comfort at end-of-life. Students expand learning about pharmacology, pathophysiology, communication, and teaching. Through laboratory and clinical experiences students expand assessment and intervention skills with emphasis on interventions for adult clients in acute care facilities.
