Assessment of the individuals across the lifespan is taught within the context of growth and development. The student should be able to differentiate between normal findings, normal variations and abnormal findings in individuals when performing assessments in a variety of settings. Assessment, as the first step of the nursing process, is the foundation for a systematic approach to care of the individual. The student will organize and analyze data to select appropriate NANDA Nursing Diagnoses for health promotion. This is a three-semester hour course, including 67.5 clinical hours.
