NUR 3455 COURSE SYLLABUS Page 2 COURSE DESCRIPTION This course provides the student with an understanding of the dynamic health status of women. The physical, physiological, and psychological adaptations of women from adolescence through older adulthood will be examined. Emphasis is placed on the care of the woman, fetus, newborn, and family throughout the perinatal period as well as on women's health promotion, prevention and treatment of health problems that exist in women from adolescence through late adulthood. Nursing theories, principles, and research provide a foundation for critical thinking in application of the nursing process. There is a focus on understanding how health status and health care are affected by cultural diversity and by the woman's varied roles in the family and community. COURSE OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Integrate nursing knowledge, systems theory and other theories, and research findings with knowledge from the humanities and science as a framework to discuss the nursing care of the woman, fetus, and newborn. 2. Analyze nursing management of healthcare problems and wellness promotion for the woman, fetus and newborn within the context of their family, community, and environmental systems. 3. Describe variations in health assessment and alterations in physical findings for women from diverse backgrounds. 4. Describe nursing management strategies which reflect sensitivity to the unique needs of the woman from adolescence through late adulthood. 5.
