NUR 241 - Advanced Gerontological Care


Semester Hours: 2
This course is designed to provide the nurse practitioner with an innovative learning model in which Advanced Gerontological Care forms a framework that integrates the pathophysiological processes of health and aging of the older adult with the theoretical basis of aging within a holistic environment.  The complexity of integrating normal aging, pathophysiology, and ethical, legal and psychosocial issues encountered in the older adult provides unique opportunities for critical thinking in the care of the multidimensional older adult. Greater depth and breadth of knowledge of the older adult as a whole individual will be provided within a holistic framework, rather than delivery of concepts in isolation. Opportunities for assessing and managing complex multisystem care, healthy aging, and geriatric syndromes in the older adult are included in the course, and integrated with Pathophysiology Across the Lifespan (NUR 201 ). Innovative course delivery integrates case-based learning (PEARLS), mini-case studies, simulation, human tissue specimens, histological and clinical correlations, and synchronous and asynchronous discussion boards. Evaluation of learning will be accomplished through case-based methods (simulation, mini-case evaluation) and exams. The course implements an interprofessional learning framework, using holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care in the process of learning.
