Emergency Nursing--N421.
Tate, Elizabeth
A description is provided of "Emergency Nursing," an undergraduate nursing course designed to provide a concentrated learning experience in emergency care. The description first provides information on the curriculum placement of the course, allotment of class time, and the targeted student population, followed by a glossary of relevant terms. The next section delineates course rationale, major course goals, long-range objectives, and unit titles and time alloted to each. Next, a list of instructional materials identifies required texts and manuals, general references, and required audio-visual materials. Descriptions are then provided for each of the course's seven units: (1) triage; (2) shock management; (3) chest trauma, chest pain, and respiratory emergency; (4) abdominal emergency; (5) obstetrical-gynecological emergency; (6) neurological emergency; and (7) legal considerations in the emergency room. Each unit description provides an overview of the topic, sets forth unit goals and specific instructional objectives, and includes a bibliography of required and recommended readings. Finally, information is provided on student and instructor evaluation, and procedures for course revision are outlined. (LAL)
