NURS 6120: Rural Primary Care Nursing II (5)

Lecture: 3, Lab: 8, Other: 0

The purpose of this course is to present the theoretical and clinical basis for health promotion and disease prevention for children and adolescents, as well as management of commonly occurring problems. The focus is on the provision of evidence based, holistic, culturally sensitive primary care for children and adolescents. Attention is directed toward the care needed to meet the health objectives for children, adolescents, and families in Healthy People 2020 as well as the needs of Georgia's rural and culturally diverse children who experience health disparities. Clinical experiences will provide opportunity for the application and integration of theory in the practice setting and development of collaborative relationships with other health care providers. Clinical experiences will occur in a variety of settings with emphasis on rural and urban underserved children, adolescents, and families. Pre-requisite: NURS 6110
