Maternal-Child Nursing

This course relates the nursing process to the needs of maternity and pediatric patients and their families. Students adapt previously learned skills and knowledge to the observation and direct care of normal- and high-risk populations. They apply theory, simulations, and clinical experiences to the clinical practice, decision making, and prioritization of care that are unique to these specialties. The integration of students' clinical experiences may include acute, chronic, long-term, and clinic/ambulatory care settings as well as college nursing skills laboratory simulations. Non-clinical activities in this course may be presented in an online format.

Instructor notes: One hour of on campus class time is now dedicated to online activities. It is expected for every hour of class time that you will spend 3 hours of time reading / studying on your own. This means you will expect to spend 9 hours a week studying /preparing for this class. You will need to be comfortable with using blackboard and SimChart (clinical). You will also need a Youtube account to access the videos. I look forward to working with you! Feel free to email in advance if you have any questions. Thanks!
