This class was tough.
I recommend this course because it is the foundation on which nurse practitioners grow and develop in their profession. All the information gained from this class directly affects patient care.
A major highlight from the course is the refresher from the undergraduate level pathophysiology class. We are gaining a deeper understanding of major processes and alterations in the body that can lead to disease whether they are caused environmentally or genetically. NUR 631 involves greater understanding of the human body down to the cellular level. In addition, draws attention to clinical manifestation and treatment of illnesses that considers age and gender.

Advice for students:
Read as much of the chapters as possible using the weekly lecture powerpoint to guide you. Pay attention to points the professor reiterates, because they are important for the tests.
