NUR 381 - Gerontology Nursing II

Credits: 3

The second course in gerontology nursing will focus on the older adult who has impaired physical or functional changes. Older adults’ differing responses to illness are presented, including delirium states versus dementia. Case studies will explore acute and chronic states of illness and how evidence based practice and quality care can promote health, prevent further illness or complications, and restore and rehabilitate. Palliative care will also be addressed in the course.
