This course provides the student with the knowledge and skills to care for clients on the wellness-illness continuum for patients during pregnancy from conception through labor and delivery and the post-partum periods, as well as children from birth through adolescence. The nursing process provides a framework for planning care for patients on the wellness-illness continuum and encourages critical thinking. Lab will reinforce basic and intermediate skills presented in   and   and present additional intermediate and advanced skills, including assessment of patients during the antepartum, intra-partum and post-partum periods on the wellness-illness continuum and of children, newborn through adolescence, including growth and development and child-specific conditions. Students will continue to develop documentation and assessment skills presented in the earlier courses and apply the nursing process through the development of individualized patient care plans. Clinical experience will provide opportunities for the student to apply knowledge and skills in the acute care setting. Students will have the opportunity to apply theory specific to the neonate-to-adolescent population and the pre-pregnant, pregnant, laboring and postpartum patient in the clinical setting. Emphasis will be on physical assessment of patients with specific age-related conditions and the ante-, intra- and post-partum patient, along with deviations from the norm. Application of the nursing process to a patient-specific condition and the corresponding documentation will be points of emphasis, along with care plan development. Care of the individual with specific congenital conditions and developmental delays will also be emphasized. Lecture: 60 hours; Lab/simulation/clinical: 135 hours. Does not count toward A.A. degree.
