This course is designed to develop a comprehensive theoretical evidence-based practical foundation for advanced nursing practice in the diagnosis and management of adults with dysfunctions/alterations in the selected area of clinical specialization. The course integrates the pathophysiology of dysfunctions/alterations in the selected area with appropriate diagnostic parameters and management strategies.

Health promotion and maintenance appropriate to these patients and families will also be emphasized.
