Pertinent microbiology, immunology, epidemiology, pharmacology, diagnostic content and nursing interventions are integrated to reflect the interrelated and holistic nature of the body’s responses to illness and healing. Students use a process of critical inquiry to support evidence-informed practice as they engage with course material.
