This course is designed to validate prior learning achieved as an LPN, RRT or paramedic and update/enhance the student's knowledge. Course content builds on a core of common knowledge identified from previous education as an LPN, RRT or paramedic and introduces these individuals to the philosophy and organizing structure of the Seminole State College Associate Degree Nursing Program. The five core educational competencies of the curriculum upon which all subsequent nursing courses are built are: (a) caring interventions, (b) clinical competence and decision-making, (c) communication, (d) commitment to professionalism and (e) collaboration and management of care. Emphasis is placed on biopsychosocial needs and the utilization of the nursing process as the framework for critical thinking and problem-solving. Students initiate the use of the nursing process and include the concepts of holistic care, effective interpersonal communication and professional accountability. Using the nursing process, the student will prioritize the biopsychosocial needs of patients with select medical surgical problems to promote optimal health and wellness. This course provides opportunities for developing competence in selected fundamental and intermediate skills and their application in patient care using theory and lab simulation. Lab fee required.
