Health Assessment

Three semester hours, six hours clinical labratory.

This online course builds upon the theoretical basis of physical, social, psychological, and cultural assessment of patients as a learned and therapeutic process through which the nurse engages individuals, patients, families, communities or vulnerable populations in meeting heath care needs.  The professional nursing role in health assessment is examined. The student applies evidence-based knowledge of pathophysiology of each body system during the application and performance of a complete health assessment to determine and prioritize nursing diagnoses.  Students will explore the legal and ethical issues implicated in obtaining and managing health data. Prerequisite: Core complete or permission of instructor.
