NRSG 901. Primary Care I: Adult-Gerontology Health. 3 Hours.
The first of two core specialty courses using a systems approach that emphasizes a multi-dimensional and interprofessional approach to assessment, differential diagnosis and treatment formulation for the health care needs of adults across the life span in multiple care settings. Common health conditions are explored in relation to health promotion, health maintenance, assessment, diagnosis and management of common episodic, chronic, and complex conditions affecting health. Students develop skills in critical thinking, analysis and synthesis of data from a variety of sources, and use of evidence-based practice guidelines in diagnosing and managing health care needs. In addition to cultural spiritual diversity, students learn how patient preferences in health care decision making are incorporated in a focus on person-centered care. Prerequisite: NRSG 801, NRSG 812, and NRSG 813. LEC.
