N4701 - Current Concepts in Pathophysiology
Delivery Mode: Web Course
Credits: Three credit hours
Prerequisite: N2740, Admission to BN(Post-RN) Program or admission to the Bachelor of Technology Program
Overview: This course focuses on common pathogenic processes and reviews the pathophysiology of selected diseases to illustrate these processes. Clinical manifestations and management of these diseases are related to the underlying pathophysiology. This course requires an understanding of basic physiology.
Course Objectives: Specific course objectives relevant to the topic will be found at the beginning of each unit. They will also be obvious from the questions which guide you're reading. After doing the appropriate reading, excercises, and assignments, you should be able to:
- identify the key pathogenic processes responsible for the majority of diseases;
- explain the manifestations and management of selected disease and health states in terms of pathophysiology of those states; and
- identify the implications for nursing of selected pathophysiologic states.
