Nursing Foundations II: Basic Nursing - NFDN 1002

Credit(s): 7 | Hours: Lecture - 45, Lab - 60, Other - 0

This second nursing foundations course builds on the theory and skills learned in Semester I, with a focus on the client and the nurse-client relationship. The primary purpose of this course is to prepare the student practical nurse for the continuing care practicum. Topics include the metaparadigm of nursing, safety, professionalism, and leadership, but the focus shifts from the applying these concepts to self to applying them to the client. Emphasis will be placed on using the nursing process, demonstrating critical thinking, applying the concept of self-care, and setting priorities. Students will develop nursing care plans tailored to client needs and will demonstrate effective documentation, mathematical calculations, communication, and client-teaching skills. In the lab setting, students will apply theory, practise skills, and competently perform the selected nursing skills required for the continuing-care practicum.

Prerequisites: ENGL 2550, HEAS 1000, and NFDN 1001 Co-requisite: PHAR 1000 Program/Plans: PN, PNREF
