NU 4060 - Community Health: Education and Prevention in Cognitively Impaired Populations


The professional nurse is often faced with challenges related to cognition and psychiatric nursing.  The function of the nurse in meeting the needs of these patients and families, as well as their communities can be challenging, as the mental health population quite often contribute to the growing homeless population in many cities. Students will explore cognition and develop their critical thinking skills to include analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.  The professional nurse must be able to communicate and lead, while applying the nursing process, and to use sound clinical judgement in situations that are related to cognition and psychiatric nursing. Credits: 4
