NURS 373 - Nursing Care of the Childbearing Family

5 cr.


(Prerequisites: NURS 350 , NURS 352-352L ); co-requisites: NURS 361 , NURS 371 )

Focus is on the physiological and psychological adaptation to functional and dysfunctional health patterns in the child-bearing family.  Emphasis is placed on the nursing process and functional health patterns as a framework for practice.  Pathophysiology and nursing care related to childbearing, childbirth and their complications are addressed. Pathophysiological processes related to alterations in sexual health are also included.  Clinical experiences are designed to develop the professional nursing role of care giver, advocate and teacher in promoting and restoring health.  Three hours lecture, 12 hours clinical lab/week (for seven weeks) alternate with NURS 371  or NURS 450  lab taken fall senior year or spring junior year.
