The purpose of this course is to understand the practical science of nursing as it applies to caring for patients through the continuum from illness to wellness using Dorothea Orem’s Theory of Self-Care and the three important nursing systems: wholly compensatory, partial compensatory, and supportive-educative. The Nursing Process, legal and ethical considerations, patient rights and privacy, growth and development as related to the patient's therapeutic self-care demands are introduced. This course also provides basic patient care skills and focuses on the essential principles and practices of safe, effective care in the multifaceted multicultural nursing field. Patient-centered, evidence-based care, safety and basic documentation associated with providing patient care are integrated throughout the course.
