8 Semester Hours (Prerequisites: BIO 2514 and BIO 2524) The nursing process is introduced with emphasis on assessment of adults. Basic human needs and developmental tasks are viewed from the theoretical frame-works of Maslow and Erikson as they relate to the adult client experiencing stress due to normal variations and/or threats to human needs. Concepts of caring and interpersonal relationships are integrated throughout course content. The interpersonal component focuses on the geriatric client through the life review process. Nursing skills are taught, demonstrated, and evaluated. (Five hours lecture and nine hours laboratory/clinical per week.) NOTE: Admission to the A.D.N. Program is required for enrollment in any NUR Course listed in this section.
