The learner examines and defines the role of the nurse in a contemporary healthcare system. Learners are introduced to the knowledge, skills and attitudes associated with the Quality & Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies. Concepts of psychological, psychosocial, safe effective care environment and health promotion/maintenance are examined. The nursing process provides a framework utilizing an interdisciplinary, collaborative care approach influencing the care of individuals involving families and communities.
This course is offered in the fall only.
Pre & Co-requisites: ENG 101, BIO 107, PSY 101
This course prepares the student for dosage calculations used in the administration of medications. Beginning level students acquire knowledge and develop proficiency in computing medication dosages. Strong student calculation competency is but one of the ingredients required for the achievement of positive patient outcomes. Among the QSEN skills competencies are demonstrting effective use of technology and standardized practices that support safety and quality; demonstrating effective use of strategies to reduce risk of harm to self or others; and using appropriate strategies to reduce reliance on memory (e.g., checklists) (QSEN, 2011, "Safety" section).. The QSEN attitudes have to do with qualities such as valuing the contributions of standardization/reliability to safety; appreciating the cognitive and physical limits of human performance; and recognizing one's own role in preventing errors (QSEN, 2011, "Safety" section).
The learner continues examining concepts of nursing care with a greater emphasis on health promotion/maintenance, physiological, psychosocial alterations of individuals across the life continuum. The plan of care expands application and integration of knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to ensure safe and effective patient care in an evolving healthcare environment.
