NURS-546 Advanced Concepts in Physiology and Pathophysiology
Fall for 2013-2014
This course presupposes a knowledge of human anatomy and undergraduate physiology. Subjects are covered from a molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, and system perspective, and related to issues of nursing practice. Since an exhaustive treatment of physiology is not possible in the time allotted, the philosophy of this course is to impart concepts of pathophysiology which can be used by the student to study any aspect of pathophysiology they might wish to acquire in the future. Emphasis is also placed on acquiring skill in the use of scientific literature and in conceptualizing information gained from many sources.
