Clinical Decision Making

4 sem. hrs. Prereq.: All nursing courses with the exception of NURS 390 and NURS 454. A final nursing class taught in conjunction with NURS 454. Focuses on the synthesis of nursing knowledge required to care for the patient and family with complex nursing needs. Centers on nursing care of patients across the life span but emphasizes the adult and geriatric patient. Assimilates previously learned information to add the depth and breadth necessary to provide holistic care for patients and families in challenging health care circumstances. Requires independent preparation and critical thinking for the synthesis and acquisition of new understandings, which will serve as a model for the ongoing professional development of the nurse as a lifelong learner. Includes NCLEX-type quizzes and case studies.
