Health Assessment

This course allows the student to develop the assessment skills necessary to provide competent care for clients of varying ages and ethnic backgrounds applying the adaptation nursing model. Health assessment is the gathering of subjective and objective data regarding a client's state of health. The knowledge gained in this course will assist the nurse in holistically assessing the adaptation level of client, family, and community across the lifespan. Students participate in the scheduled weekly Skills Lab and are expected to use the Skills Lab on an independently scheduled basis to practice the necessary psycho-motor skills for completing a physical assessment. Lab contact hours meet the Carnegie 2:1 ratio for credit awarded.
