NURS 619 - Medical-Surgical Nursing I - Clinical Lab (3)

This clinical application course guides the student in providing comprehensive care for acutely ill adults. A variety of learning experiences will occur within various acute care settings. Emphasis will be placed on the nursing process, a basis for holistic patient assessment, and the delivery of informed nursing care. The importance of patient perception, coping skills, and understanding of health and illness will be integrated to achieve optimal outcomes. Students will learn to effectively delegate and manage nursing resources and serve as both leader and partner on an interdisciplinary healthcare team. A School of Nursing-issued "Clinical Clearance Form", given to the student after completion of specific pre-clinical requirements, is due to the Instructor on the first clinical meeting day.
