This course focuses on mental health concepts across the lifespan, and which inform the provision of safe and effective nursing care. Emphasis is placed on concepts including coping and stress tolerance, emotion, cognitive function, and maladaptive behavior. Students apply concepts in seminar, lab, and/or clinical settings, and can put concepts into practice upon completing the course. The California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) requires that students must be enrolled in ADN 230 and ADN 230L at the same time and pass both courses together: the courses cannot be taken individually for credit.
