Behavioral Health Nursing

In this mental health population, guided by Orem’s Theory of Self-Care, students will gain theoretical knowledge of adult and geriatric patients specific to their developmental level with complex psychosocial self-care deficits and health deviations. The three models of nursing systems recognized by Orem’s Nursing System Theory will be addressed: wholly compensatory, partial compensatory, and supportive-educative. Content threaded throughout the course includes cultural diversity, nutrition, pharmacology, patient advocacy, and physical, behavioral, and social aspects of human development.
