Nursing 1030 examines fundamental principles and skills for nursing practice. Students are introduced to Primary Health Care and to the Prince Edward Island Conceptual Model of Nursing: A Nursing Perspective of Primary Health Care. Through this theoretical framework, nursing concepts are explored and strategies for nursing care considered. Students are introduced to beginning communication, assessment, and psychomotor skills through active participation in online and onsite lectures, lab and clinical seminar settings. Students have an opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge to clinical practice by partnering with healthy older adults living independently in the community and in long term care settings.
