NUR 3010 - Nursing Care for Vulnerable Populations

Credits: 3

This course generates the growth mindset needed in the baccalaureate prepared registered nurse to serve through nursing care in multifaceted situations and adaptive environments. Concepts and theories i.e. servant leadership, loss, ethics, advocacy, funding sources and resources, rural and inner city community, culture and ethnicity, family structure, disaster response, and mentoring, along with others are interwoven to reflect the complex nature of the nurse-patient (individual, family, community) relationship. The care needs of vulnerable populations i.e. those in long term care, the homeless, and those with substance disuse disorder are a special focus.

Prerequisite(s): None
