NUR 207 Childrearing Family (1 credits)

This course focuses on the use of the nursing process to understand childhood physiologic alterations. The concepts of the nursing process are expanded to enable students to understand planned and implemented care that will meet the needs of the child and their family throughout the course of a child's illness. The student will apply the nursing process with identification and reporting of child abuse and maltreatment. 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: Matriculation in Nursing.
