NURS 610 - Pathophysiology for Advanced Practice


This course is designed to present an orientation to disease as disordered physiology. It is intended to provide Advanced Practice Nurses/Family Nurse Practitioner students with an in-depth knowledge base necessary to understand how and why the symptoms and signs of various conditions appear. In approaching disease as disordered physiology, this course analyzes the mechanism(s) of production of the symptoms and signs of different disease syndromes. In doing so, it recognizes the student’s and practitioner’s need to understand the mechanisms underlying the disease and its clinical manifestations so that rational therapies can be devised. Thus, appropriate screening and diagnostic laboratory evaluative methods will also be included.

Prerequisite: BSN.

Credits: 3 cr
