FOUNDATIONS OF NURSING I
Designed for students at the entry level in the Associate in Science nursing curriculum. The focus is the study of individuals throughout the life cycle, with concentration on basic needs and growth and development. The nursing process, and identification of the six basic needs (oxygenation, nutrition, elimination, motor-sensory, psychosocial, and regulatory) are introduced with special emphasis on assessment of clients. Basic nursing interventions which promote health and assist individuals to maintain optimal health are explored. Supervised learning experiences in community agencies are correlated with classroom and college laboratory instruction. The student nurse begins to identify with the three roles of the associate degree nurse.

FOUNDATIONS OF NURSING II
Designed for second level nursing students or students who have successfully completed the advanced placement requirements. The focus is on the study of health problems resulting from one or more unmet basic needs, which may impact other basic needs. Emphasis is placed on nursing diagnoses and nursing interventions which will assist the individual to achieve and maintain optimal health. Supervised learning experiences in acute care facilities are correlated with classroom and college laboratory instruction. The student achieves established competencies associated with each of the three roles of the associate degree nurse. Four class periods and 9 hours of laboratory weekly.

ISSUES IN NURSING
A discussion of current concerns and trends in nursing and the historical developments of these issues. Students will submit a paper addressing an issue in nursing; guest speakers and attendance at a Vermont State Board of Nursing meeting are also learning experiences.

COMPONENTS OF NURSING OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS I
Designed to increase the understanding of broad pathophysiological and psychosocial concepts necessary for passage of Vermont State Board of Nursing Examinations for R.N. Licensure.

NURSING OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Designed for third level nursing students or students who have successfully completed the advanced placement requirements. The focus is on the study of acute health problems which result when the ability to meet one or more basic needs is severely compromised. Increasingly complex nursing interventions which promote, maintain and restore health are explored. Emphasis is placed on the need for the nurse to set priorities of care. The student develops and implements short-range teaching plans to support and restore health. Guided learning experiences in an acute care facility, including the specialty care units, are combined with classroom and college lab instruction.

NURSING OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS II
Designed for fourth level nursing students. The focus is on the study of chronic health problems which interfere with multiple basic needs and have wide ramifications for the individual and significant others. Emphasis is placed on implementation and evaluation of nursing interventions. Nursing interventions which promote, maintain, and restore health are planned based on nursing goals developed in collaboration with a professional nurse. Long range teaching plans are also developed in conjunction with health care team members. The role of the associate degree nurse as a manager of care is expanded through a planned team leader experience. An independent practicum experience at the end of the semester provides the student with an opportunity to perform nursing skills in an environment that fosters greater independent functioning. Guided learning experiences in an acute care facility are correlated with classroom or college laboratory instruction. Upon completion of the course and related general education requirements the graduate is able to assume the three interrelated roles of the associate degree nurse on entry into nursing practice.
