        This course provides an introduction to nursing and roles of the licensed vocational nurse, health care team members, as well as profession related and patient care concepts. Emphasis is placed on the knowledge and skills needed to provide safe, quality care. The theoretical foundation for basic assessment and nursing skills is presented, and the student is given an opportunity to demonstrate these skills in a clinical laboratory setting. An introduction to the nursing process provides a decision-making framework to assist students in developing effective clinical judgment skills. Utilization of the nursing process and developmental theories (primary Erikson), focus on the nursing role as communicator, provider of care, and patient teacher. Parameters of health are defined. Nursing fundamental concepts are introduced related to physical and psychological assessment needs of the normal and ill individual; pain assessment, interventions and evaluation; basic nutrition; and stress and adaption concepts. Safe patient care is expounded on with the principles of basic hygiene, medical asepsis, correct body mechanics, and the principles of a safe, therapeutic environment. Use of the communication process will assist the student in identifying patient needs and safety issues. Identification of legal/ethical constraints and institutional policies of reporting and recording patient information will be addressed. Variations in nursing care for individuals of different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds will be explored. (CSU)
