NURE 260 - Nursing Care of Children and their Families

This course builds upon the foundation of NURE 250  and LPN education. It explores the role of the professional registered nurse in caring for the pediatric client. Emphasis is placed on pediatric normalcy in a child experiencing an acute or chronic health deviation from infancy through adolescence. A significant aspect of this course is an understanding of the concepts of atraumatic care, family advocacy, and an interdisciplinary approach to health care. The student will continue to utilize and modify the nursing process and teaching/learning strategies while refining critical thinking and clinical skills. Clinical experiences are provided in a variety of structured, multi cultural pediatric health care settings. Other learning experiences will occur in the classroom, the Learning/Simulation Center, and assigned computer assisted instruction.
