Introduction to Pathophysiology (NURS 1162)

This course introduces the study of pathophysiology. Students build on existing knowledge of human anatomy and physiology by examining altered functions for selected body systems. Pertinent microbiology, immunology, epidemiology, pharmacology, diagnostic content and nursing interventions are integrated to reflect the interrelated and holistic nature of the body’s responses to illness and healing. Students use a process of critical inquiry to support evidence-informed practice as they engage with course material focusing on the older adult.
