Wells, Tanya G.
"Utilization of Skills in the Care of Patients with Deviations in Psychosocial Adaptation" (NS 207) is an associate degree nursing course offered at Chattanooga State Technical Community College. The course stresses the individual as a system in his/her psychosocial adaptation to internal and external stressors, and highlights the nurse's roles of communicator, patient teacher, and planner and coordinator of patient care. The course syllabus for NS 207 begins with information on class, laboratory, and credit hours; prerequisites; textbooks; week-by-week course content; course competencies; evaluation criteria; and curriculum coding. The bulk of the syllabus presents objectives, textual information, assignments, and questions keyed to the textbook for each of the five course units. The units focus on: (1) an overview of nursing care for patients with deviations in psychosocial adaptation; (2) promotion, maintenance, and/or restoration of psychosocial adaptation; (3) theories of behavior and implications for utilization of skills; (4) health deviations associated with substance abuse; and (5) resources available to the nurse in practicing the role of planner and coordinator of patient care. A rating instrument for clinical behaviors concludes the syllabus. (EJV)
