ADN 106 - Meeting Human Needs II

The focus of this course is the care of persons who have actual/potential health problems related to immunity, fluid and electrolytes, the integumentary system, surgery and health management.  Classroom, theory, and clinical practice integrate all eleven of Gordon’s Functional Health Patterns, our beliefs about human caring, the nature of human beings, health and nursing.  The concepts of hierarchy of human needs and life cycle are applied to the nursing care of persons with common health problems.

The nursing process is utilized as the modality through which critical thinking skills are applied in the delivery of care.  Emphasis is placed on health assessment, health promotion, health restoration, and health maintenance.  The student provides care using knowledge, comprehension, application, and analysis, under supervision in a variety of settings and further develops the eight roles of the associate degree nurse.  The eight roles include:  professional behavior, communication, assessment, caring intervention, clinical decision making, teaching-learning, collaboration, and managing care.
