Pathophysiology for Advanced Practice Nurses

NURS 339 - Pathophysiology for Registered Nurses (RN-BSN Only)

Focuses on cellular physiological and pathophysiological processes through the lifespan, in order to provide a foundation for wholistic clinical assessment, decision-making, and clinical management. Emphasis is on commonly found altered health states based on current epidemiological trends. Integration of current research from nursing and other disciplines is used to explore the pathophysiological processes, the compensatory mechanisms, and the rationales for clinical interventions. The advanced practice clinician will be able to utilize this knowledge as a basis for interpreting changes in normal physiologic function, and in prescribing appropriate treatment modalities.
