Nursing of Adults II is one of two 7 ½ week modules taught in the third semester of the four semester nursing clinical course sequence.  The module builds upon previous learning, requiring the student to carry out increasingly skillful assessment and intervention with patients with complex needs through an inter-dependent relationship with clinical faculty and staff.  In this module the student will explore the theoretical content and carry out the nursing process with adults, aged adults and frail elderly with chronic, catastrophic and critical illness and injury. Focus will be on patients experiencing actual or potential disruptions in wellness states such as: failure in neurologic, sensory and renal integration, and multi-system failure.  Students will also learn and utilize management principles and techniques necessary for managing the care of groups of patients.  Four hours of lecture and two days (12 hours total) of clinical practice per week for both day and evening students are required.  A service learning experience is also required.  An Honors Option is also available.  A satisfactory clinical evaluation and a minimum theory grade of “C” are required for progression in the program.  Students must also register for NURS C23 (clinical).
