Foundations of Nursing
This course focuses on the application of the nursing process in the provision of primary, secondary, and tertiary interventions to strengthen, and/or reconstitute, the adult client/patient's lines of defense and resistance to internal, external, and created stressors. The student will identify stressors affecting the physiological, psychological, sociocultural, developmental, and spiritual variables of the client/patient system. The student will provide care to patients/clients in the acute care and community environments.
