Students will focus on selected topics to learn a basis for nursing assessment and planning of care for individuals requiring health care in secondary and tertiary health care settings and in home care and community nursing. Students will propose care for individuals based on an understanding of the underlying disease pathology, the expected medical and pharmacological treatment, and the scope of independent and collaborative nursing practice. The student will learn how to help patients meet their needs through direct intervention, by teaching patients and family members to perform care and lifestyle management, and by coordinating and collaborating with other professionals to provide required services. Case studies will be built around specific points of contact for the nurse with the patient/client. Clinical reasoning will be fostered to develop the ability of the student to adapt and apply concepts learned in this course to clinical situations and in subsequent courses within the Bachelor of Nursing program.
