NURS 4006 - Topics in Clinical Nursing


(5 cr.) In this course, students learn about the major acute and chronic health problems and leading causes of death across the lifespan, including etiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and implications for treatment and disease management. They also explore the relationship of genetics and genomics to health and illness; infection-control issues, such as drug-resistant organisms; accidents or injuries; common geriatric syndromes; palliative and end-of-life care; and complementary and alternative therapies. Students apply course concepts and demonstrate understanding of nursing intervention through the development of an action plan based on best practices and a teaching plan designed to prevent accidents and injuries.
