NURS 219 - Human Experience


Credit(s): 3
Students will explore the development of holistic caring-healing relationships with patients and families in a variety of settings. Ways of knowing, therapeutic communication, critical thinking and assessment will provide a context for providing holistic, evidence-based, and inter-professional care.  The universal human experience of suffering, crisis, and loss will be examined in diverse developmental/age, gender, multicultural, and spiritual contexts.  Dynamics of family, group, and community influences will be considered in the context of transcultural practices and holistic care.  Students will be guided in values clarification between the nurse-client lived experience, and health-care professional and client, and theoretical concepts. The personal and professional development of the nurse will be strengthened through personal knowing, narrative, journaling, reflection and self-care.
