NUR 222 Oxygenation Needs II (1 credit)
This course builds on theory and skills learned in NUR 182. It prepares students to develop and utilize the nursing process during respiratory and circulatory physical assessment. Assessments of normal and abnormal heart and lung sounds are taught, as well as basic electrocardiogram identification. Select oxygenation crises are included for nursing assessments and interventions. Advanced respiratory and circulatory care modalities are also included. 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. Prerequisite: NUR 180; co-requisite: NUR 220.
