This course focuses on the application of the nursing process in caring for children, and is designed for students in the Associate Degree Nursing Program. Emphasis is placed on normal growth and development patterns of the growing child and developmental, biological, interpersonal, and intrapersonal stressors affecting children and their families. The pathophysiology of disease process that may occur during childhood and related medical and nursing interventions are discussed; students apply the theoretical concepts in the clinical setting. The Board of Registered Nursing requires that students must be enrolled in ADN 156 and ADN 156L concurrently, and pass both courses at the same time. Neither course can be taken individually for credit.
