With completion of this course, as an advanced practice nurse, I will have a better understanding of how to care for each patient as an individual. Taking into consideration the patient’s family history, prior medical history, signs and symptoms, and disease process along with research based practice will result in best practice patient- centered care. This course has also incorporated the epidemiology of disease to allow for insight on what patient populations are more prone to a particular disease. In all forms of healthcare, it remains essential to remain up to date on patient care strategies, new treatment techniques, and first line medications. Therefore, learning and practicing to locate peer-reviewed research along with having the ability to translate this information into patient care is an important skill for all advanced practice nurses to possess.

By understanding the normal processes of the body, we are able to understand the disease process more, why the symptoms are as they present themselves and the rationale for the treatment used. It involved the understanding of lab values, signs and symptoms presented, and how cells respond to various stimuli in various stages in life, which became challenging. It also brings greater understanding on how the body systems are connected to each other that although one system the symptoms may manifest in a different system. By developing medical diagnosis weekly on case studies, it provides understanding about the things that should be looked at clinically while taking into account their age, culture, family dynamics and socio-economic status in providing an appropriate care plan as a clinician. In developing these diagnoses, it provides the opportunity to research more on the illness and treatment of these disease. There is
