Designed to assist the beginning-nursing student to conduct a comprehensive holistic health assessment of persons across the life span. Assessment is considered foundational to the nurse's goal of maximizing health. The emphasis in this course is on individual health rather than disease/illness. Students will be introduced to broad definitions and indicators of health. Using a variety of methods, students will apply caring behaviors and interviewing principles to conduct a comprehensive health history and perform a physical examination to determine health status, in both the nursing skill laboratory and community settings.
