The focus of this course is to provide client-centered care to clients with acute, chronic, and complex healthcare needs across the life
span. The elements of evidence-based practice will be utilized to enhance the plan of care. Students are given the opportunity to gain
cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills in the delivery of client care to clients with neurological, sensory, and respiratory
disorders. Many of the clients may be more critically ill than those previously encountered. Students will continue to be introduced
to the skills of intravenous therapy, phlebotomy, and electrocardiogram tracing. Nurse-in-charge assignments will begin in this course
and continue through the end of the program in NUR238. Available sources of informatics will be utilized in the care setting to
organize and manage client care.
