This course introduces the five core educational competencies of the curriculum upon which all subsequent nursing courses are built: (a) caring interventions, (b) clinical competence and decision-making, (c) communication, (d) commitment to professionalism and (e) collaboration and management of care. The student will be introduced to the legal, ethical and professional standards of the nursing profession and the role of the associate degree nurse in health promotion, maintenance and restoration. Basic biopsychosocial needs of clients are identified and the student will begin to utilize the nursing process to identify client needs and intervene when these needs are unmet. Clinical competence in selected fundamental nursing skills will be developed in the simulated nursing laboratory. There will be clinical experiences in local long-term care and acute care facilities for students to begin to apply concepts and competencies learned in the classroom and nursing laboratory. Lab fee required.
