Basic Nursing Skills
Four semester hours, theory (1 hour) and clinical lab (3 hours equal nine contact hours). (SP)
This four-credit hour theory, laboratory and clinical course provides an introduction to the psychomotor skills involved in providing basic nursing care to a culturally diverse population. Students are exposed to a variety of psychomotor skills applicable to nursing and other disciplines, such as medication administration, body mechanics, vital signs, patient transport, range of motion exercises, hot and cold therapies, stress management, hygiene, skin and wound care, and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). In addition, through laboratory and clinical assignments, students gain competence in nursing technique, including comfort measures, positioning and transporting, asepsis and sterile procedures, and therapeutic modalities related to preoperative and postoperative care. Students will be expected to apply critical thinking to their mastery of basic nursing skills. (Advanced standing for Registered Nurses; opportunities for challenge exams available for active currently licensed vocational or practical nurses.) Co-requisite: NURS 2312. Course fee: $100.00.
