Brady, Marilyn H.; Hutsell, Deborah C.
"Utilization of Skills in the Care of the Parent Child System" (NS 139) is an associate degree nursing course offered at Chattanooga State Technical Community College to provide essential theory and experience in caring for the parent-child system throughout various stages of development. The course syllabus for NS 139 begins with information on class, laboratory, and credit hours; prerequisites; textbooks; week-by-week course content; course objectives; evaluation criteria; and curriculum coding. Next, instructions are provided for class assignments, and information is presented on labor and delivery, nursery, and post partum routines. The remainder of the syllabus presents objectives, textual information, assignments, and questions keyed to the textbook for each of the seven course units. The units focus on: (1) pregnancy and labor; (2) adaptations of the maternal system, parent-infant system, and newborn immediately following childbirth as well as health deviations during labor and pregnancy; (3) assessing the newborn, effects of prematurity, and health deviations associated with the newborn; (4) nutritional requirements of infants and children, procedures for the hospitalization of children, and diseases and accidents during childhood; (5) health deviations of the respiratory subsystem and cystic fibrosis; (6) the effects of congenital defects, the effect of cerebral palsy on the child's state of adaptation, and nursing care of the parent-child system when the child has a developmental health deviation; and (7) failure to thrive and urinary subsystem health deviations in children. A rating instrument for clinical behaviors concludes the syllabus. (EJV)
