This course outline provides information to be used by students in conjunction with Nursing 89, a seminar on the legal aspects of nursing to be offered starting in Spring 1982 at Diablo University (California). General information is provided first, including a class calendar, a statement defining the purpose of the course, an outline of long-range objectives, a course description, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography. The course outline then delineates the goals, learning objectives, readings, and sample test questions for each of eight course units: (1) laws in general; (2) the Nurse Practice Act and licensure; (3) contracts; (4) the Patient's Bill of Rights; (5) insurance and risk management; (6) liability, including issues such as negligence, malpractice, torts, and crime; (7) medical records audit and utilization review; and (8) wills. The outline concludes with a course/instructor evaluation form to be completed by the student at the end of the course. (JP)
