Child Health (NURS 1359)

This course provides additional theoretical and clinical experience in the care of children and families. Learners will build on existing knowledge of caring for the infant to adolescence population by focusing on synthesis of knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable nurses to provide competent care to vulnerable children and families in transition. Learners will be provided opportunities to apply holistic assessment of growth and development from infancy to adolescence. Themes of culture care and transition related to children will be built upon. A review of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of pediatric cardiovascular, neurological, endocrine, musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal body systems is included. Learners will build on previous pharmacological knowledge with additional knowledge specific to care of children such as pediatric dosages. The clinical experience will support the consolidation of learning.
