Medical Surgical Nursing II
Building on concepts from previous courses, this course focuses on health management, maintenance and prevention of illness; care for the individual as a whole; and deviations from the normal state of health. Administering patient care includes use of the nursing process while performing focused assessments, using sound judgment, and providing patient education.
The systems included are immunology, sensory, neurology, digestive, endocrine, urinary, and reproductive, as well as oncology nursing. The concepts of patient care, treatments, pharmacology, and diet therapy are included within each system.
Content is presented from a patient-centered approach based on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Patient care involves consideration of physiological, cognitive, psychosocial, and spiritual needs within a cultural framework. Consideration is also given to the impact of health issues: the potential physical and mental adjustments required, as well as any necessary diversional or rehabilitative activities.
