Advanced Physical Assessment Across the Lifespan

NURSE-GN 2012, 3 Credits, (Fall, Summer)

In this course, the advanced practice student develops advanced comprehensive history taking and physical assessment competencies in the context of the nurse-client relationship. The outcomes are achieved via a case-based approach that is hypothesis driven and focuses on clinical decision making using the best available evidence to mutually address client goals using a culturally relevant approach. There is an introduction to laboratory and diagnostic tests and basic electrocardiogram interpretation as part of the decision making process.
