NUR 180 Nursing Process and Concepts I (1 credit)
Introduces the concepts essential for applying Level 1 human needs theory in the clinical setting. Concepts stressed are: an effective approach to learning; the role of the nurse within the health care system; problem solving/introduction to the Nursing Process; and introduction to human needs theory. Time required for completion of this course is dependent on the individual learner; however, it is expected that students will spend at least 45 hours in study and classroom activity for the theory and procedure components. Demonstration of the application of these concepts in the clinical setting is a requirement of NUR 180. The final grade in NUR 180 is dependent on successful completion of all Level 1 requirements. Prerequisite: matriculation in Nursing.
