This course focuses on the aging process as it relates to normal aging and related changing biological, interpersonal, and intrapersonal needs. It also focuses on the application of the nursing process in caring for patients with disturbances in perception, coordination, and mobility. The pathophysiology of disease processes as well as medical and nursing interventions and rehabilitative approaches to restoring and maintaining optimum health are discussed. This course is designed for students in the Associate Degree Nursing program. The Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) requires that ADN 251 students must be concurrently enrolled in ADN 251L, and pass both courses together: ADN 251 and ADN 251L cannot be taken individually for credit.
