This is the last of four Nursing Concepts courses, and it builds upon the basic principles of nursing presented in the previous nursing courses.

Lab skills learned in previous courses will be reviewed, and simulation will be used to reinforce classroom teaching. Clinical experience will provide opportunities for the student to apply knowledge in the acute and critical care setting.
