NUR 201 - Advanced Pathophysiology Across the Life Span


Semester Hours: 3
This course is designed to prepare the nurse practitioner students with a comprehensive foundation of the pathophysiological processes associated with alterations in human physiology, using an innovative approach to learning. The course is organized by body system, relating alterations and dysfunction of disease processes found in a diverse community across the lifespan. The complexity of pathophysiology across the lifespan will be presented to provide the foundation necessary for critical thinking and clinical reasoning as part of the care and management of the multidimensional patient. Multiple innovative learning methodologies add depth and breadth to the learner’s experience and facilitate enhanced comprehension of pathophysiology. Instructional strategies used throughout the course include, but are not limited to, case-based/problem-based learning (PEARLS), mini-case studies, simulations, large-group facilitated discussions, and cadaver-based anatomic and clinical correlations to pathophysiology. PEARLS (patient-centered case-based explorations) is the pedagogy specifically focused on the integration of the content of NUR 201: Pathophysiology Across the Lifespan with that of NUR 203: Advanced Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics. Formative and summative learner assessment will be conducted periodically and cumulatively throughout the course. The course uses an interprofessional approach to the content emphasizing holistic, evidence-based, patient-centered care.
