Nursing Seminar is a full semester course taught in the fall semester allowing students to return to Nursing Care of Adults I (NURS 111) in the spring semester.
The course reviews basic concepts from Foundations of Nursing. It is expected that a student progressing to the next course, Nursing of Adults I, will demonstrate the knowledge and skills learned in Foundations of Nursing. This content will address the care of the adult patient, test taking skills, and the nursing process. The three-dimensional matrix of clinical practice competencies (in the nursing skills lab), clinical reasoning skills and caring is explored through continuing themes of lifespan perspective, alterations in health states, multicultural sensitivity, therapeutic communication, client advocacy, teaching, legal and ethical standards, nutrition, pharmacotherapeutics, psychomotor skill competencies (which will be assessed in the nursing skills lab) and self-assessment.
