223X Nursing of Individuals and Families in Wellness and Illness (June 2 - July 22, 2014)

In this course the student focuses on the experience of illness and the impact of illness and hospitalization on the patient. The primary focus is the individual patient; however, the individual is considered within the context of the family. Each student has two two week rotations; one rotation involves working with healthy children in a community setting and the other rotation involves working with adult patients who are experiencing an acute illness or an acute episode of chronic illness in the hospital setting. Students learn to apply the principles of primary health care to nursing practice in the acute care setting.
