ATC NURNP 2106 3 Clinical Emphasis - Critical Care

This course is designed to develop a comprehensive theoretical and practical foundation for advanced nursing practice in the diagnosis and management of selected dysfunctions/alterations commonly seen in the critically ill adult. Didactic content focuses on information central to planning, implementing and evaluating therapeutic regimens for patients with problems commonly seen in the critical care setting. Through ongoing clinical experience, students implement the nursing process when caring for patients who are critically ill and apply the clinical decision-making process in care of patients. Aspects of health promotion and maintenance appropriate to these patients and families will also be emphasized.

NUR 2112 3 Applied Parametric and Non-Parametric Statistics for the Health Sciences 1

This course develops skill in parametric and nonparametric applications of descriptive and inferential statistics to health sciences research. The concept of parametric and non-parametric statistics is covered.  Parametric tests for comparing means include one-sample z and t-tests, and independent and related samples t-tests. Methods for checking parametric test assumptions are presented, and remedies for assumption violations explored, including non-parametric alternatives for these tests. Software for statistical analyses will be introduced along with data examples from health science research.
