This course focuses on the application of the nursing process in caring for childbearing women, their newborns, and their families through the normal childbearing process, with attention to common pathophysiologies associated with childbearing and newborns. Students use evidence-based practice to guide their clinical practice, and enhance their cultural sensitivity to the diverse population served. Development of patient teaching skills is emphasized, the nursing process is integrated throughout the clinical experience, and students apply learned theoretical concepts in the clinical setting. This course is designed for students in the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program. The Board of Registered Nursing requires that students be enrolled concurrently in ADN 155 and ADN 155L, and pass both courses together. The courses cannot be taken individually for credit.
