The Nursing IV course expands upon previous concepts and competencies introduced during Nursing I, II, and III.  Nursing IV analyzes and applies the theoretical concepts related to the role of the professional nurse and examines comprehensive nursing care for patients across the life span experiencing critical complex health problems. The course continues to utilize the nursing process as the framework for nursing care using evidence-based practice and critical thinking/clinical reasoning. Nursing IV also examines healthcare delivery and infrastructure as students consolidate their role as a professional nurse. Clinical experiences offer students the opportunity to integrate the theoretical concepts into practice within a structured setting. (Prerequisite: NURS210W; Corequisite: HUMA212W)
