Promoting Adaptation:LPN to RNAdult Health III (NUR 212)
Term: 2013-2014 Academic Year Fall Term
This clinical course builds upon the skills and abilities of the practicing licensed practical nurse (LPN). The course coordinates with the first role development course to begin the transition from LPN into the roles of the associate degree nurse and registered nurse. The Roy Adaptation Model is applied to physical, role function, interdependence, and self-concept adaptive needs of the aging population and the adult/family unit, who are striving to cope with changes in health. The LPN-RN student builds upon communication and critical thinking skills through application of the nursing process. The student designs an individualized nursing care plan in collaboration with the aging/adult client/family.
