NUR-1070 Paramedic-RN Transition Option


8 Credits
This 10-week course (offered in the summer only) is designed to prepare paramedics for entry into the second year of an associate degree nursing program. Information from the first year nursing program courses is presented in a condensed format. The patient-needs framework of the curriculum, as well as nursing processes will be explored. Students are presented with effective methods of stress management, test-taking skills, and critical thinking concepts. The nursing role is discussed with emphasis on health maintenance, health promotion, physiological and psychosocial integrity, and adaptation. Pharmacological concepts will be integrated throughout the course content. Topics also include role transition, nursing process, documentation, communication, legal and ethical issues. Selected content for the first year of the associate degree program include acute and chronic health disorders, care of the patients during all phases of the child-bearing cycle, disorders and diseases affecting the female and male reproductive tract, and dosage calculations. Supervised clinical practice in selected long-term care or acute care settings is correlated with classroom and campus laboratory experience. Upon successful completion of this course, the student is eligible to enroll into the second year courses of the Nursing (RN) A.S. degree program (NUR-2010  and NUR-2020 ).
