ADN 131 - ADN-Nursing 2, Mental Health Nursing/Maternity Nursing (and Lab, and Clinical Study)

8 credits

This course builds upon, and is an extension of, ADN 120 ADN-Nursing 1, Fundamentals of Nursing (and Lab, and Clinical Study) . There are two segments: ADN-2(A) Maternity Nursing, and ADN-2(B) Metal Health Nursing. ADN-2(A) is devoted to viewing the individual as part of a family unit. Health needs occurring at various stages during the childbearing years are studied. The student is introduced to pathophysiological factors as complications of the maternity cycle and women’s health are discussed. ADN-2(B) views the individual as part of the larger whole; as a member of interrelated groups within his/her community. Mental Health will be looked upon as occurring along a continuum and influenced by factors such as culture, education, and value system. The emphasis will be on the use of the nursing process in caring for individuals of all ages with selected psychiatric mental health disorders. Physical and mental health changes in the aging population will be explored in depth. Clinical experience is provided each week.

Notes: May be taken for Honors.
