NUR 380 - Gerontology Nursing I

Credits: 3

This course is designed to further develop the practicing nurse’s knowledge in the area of gerontology nursing. The course will guide students in reflecting upon their own and society’s views on aging, and specifically, how an aging population impacts the nation’s health policy and nursing care demands. Theories of aging and the physical and functional changes that accompany aging will be incorporated into the nursing process for providing safe care and promoting healthy practices in the older adult. Quality of life measures for the older adult living with chronic illness and transitioning through care settings will be emphasized.
