|HPD||NUR||1052C||2.5||Nursing Care Of Children And Their Families Clinical|
This course focuses on nursing practice for restoration and maintenance of health in children in various stages of development within their families and the broader social contexts in which children grow and develop. Nursing approaches used in the clinical setting are based on the use of best evidence, developmental perspectives, and cultural competence. The nursing process is applied to the child and family to minimize the effects of stressors which have resulted in a disruption of health. There is an emphasis on critical thinking and decision making as the student applies theory to nursing care.
