NUR 4232 - Complex Nursing: Clinical

2 Credit Hour(s)
This course provides the clinical component to NUR 4223  and is the third of three Medical-Surgical clinical courses that provides a basis for the generalist graduate nurse. This course integrates complex learning concepts and advanced technical skills found within health promotion, disease prevention, and the disease process to the care of diverse adult and older adult populations, their affected families, and community systems. This course completes the transition from novice nurse to advanced beginner to design/manage/coordinate, implement, and evaluate evidenced based patient-centered care. The General System Theory is utilized to implement care for those experiencing complex needs in the changing 21st century health care environment. Critical thinking skills are used for decision making with specific needs of adults and older adults with potential, acute, and complex health problems, which may be life threatening. Ethical and legal values and the Christian worldview are interwoven in a culturally congruent process in each clinical environment. The complex clinical environments will include a variety of higher acuity settings and may include exposure to the emergency departments, step down units, and intensive care units.
