NUR 124: Medical-Surgical Nursing I - Clinical Practice
This medical-surgical clinical experience builds on knowledge and basic skills from prerequisite courses. The lab component covers advanced nursing skills associated with the care of acutely ill adults. In the clinical component, the student begins to develop competency with time management and prioritization of patient care, while gaining an increased proficiency in assessment skills and medication administration. Using the nursing process, students learn to care for one (1) patient with moderately complex medical-surgical needs in the acute care setting. Pre-clinical assessment time is required prior to and outside of the scheduled clinical hours. The title of this course was previously Acute Care Nursing I - Clinical Practice.
