Lincoln Memorial University (Caylor School of Nursing)




MISSION STATEMENT
In conjunction with the University’s mission, the faculty of the Caylor School of Nursing strives to instill responsibility and high moral/ethical standards in the preparation of quality nurses, at multiple levels of nursing education, through superior academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate level. Specifically, the mission of the faculty is to prepare nurses with the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree, the Registered Nurse to Baccalaureate of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) degree, and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree, to assist individuals, families, communities, and society as they adapt to changes in physiological needs, role function, self-concept and interdependent relationships during health and illness. The Caylor School of Nursing seeks to respond to the needs of nursing education and healthcare in the surrounding communities by preparing nurses at multiple levels and by providing continuing education/ professional development opportunities that are rooted in knowledge, research, and other scholarly activities.

Lincoln Memorial University established the Associate of Science in Nursing (A.S.N.) degree program in 1974. As a reflection of the changing local health care needs and national trends in nursing, the University instituted the RN to B.S.N. degree program in 1987. Both programs are founded on the belief that nursing is a service which aims to assist individuals to attain, maintain, or regain optimum level wellness through application of the nursing process. The A.S.N. program is approved by both the Kentucky and Tennessee Boards of Nursing; the RN-BSN program is approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing. Both programs are accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), Incorporated. NLNAC is officially recognized as a national accrediting agency for nursing education by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and by the U.S. Department of Education.

FOUNDATIONS OF NURSING Introducing the nursing process with focus on the development of psychomotor and psychosocial skills. The Roy Adapta tion Model (RAM) of Nursing is introduced and is utilized as basis for promotion of adaptation in human persons as evidenced in the four adaptive modes: physiologic, self concept, role function, and interdependence; emphasis on beginning recognition of adaptive human responses versus ineffective responses. History of nursing, selected theories of nursing, nursing roles, and definitions of human person, environment, health, and nursing are discussed; beginning skills related to basic nursing care, communication, and assessment are included. Clinical learning experiences occur in the campus laboratory and in structured health care facilities with adults. HUMANS AS ADAPTIVE SYSTEMS: PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN THE PHYSIOLOGIC MODE Bridging the gap between the role of LPN and basic nursing practice as an RN. Focus is on recognition of adaptive human responses versus ineffective responses related to the physiologic mode of human adaptive systems. The RAM nursing process is utilized for delivery of basic nursing care for human persons focusing on the adaptive/ineffective responses of the identified physiologic mode needs. Builds upon knowledge acquired in study of anatomy, physiology, and developmental psychology. In addition to the classroom and campus laboratory, clinical learning experiences occur in community and hospital settings with adults. HUMANS AS ADAPTIVE SYSTEMS: PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN THE PHYSIOLOGIC MODE Focusing on recognition of adaptive human responses versus ineffective responses related to the physiologic mode of human adaptive systems. The RAM nursing process is utilized for delivery of basic nursing care for human persons focusing on the adaptive/ineffective responses of the identified physiologic mode needs. Builds upon knowledge acquired in study of anatomy, physiology, and developmental psychology. In addition to the classroom and campus laboratory, clinical learning experiences occur in community and hospital settings with adults. HUMANS AS ADAPTIVE SYSTEMS: PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN THE PSYCHOSOCIAL MODES Focusing on recognition of adaptive human responses versus ineffective responses related to the 3 psychosocial modes of human adaptive systems. The RAM nursing process is utilized for delivery of basic nursing care for human persons focusing on the adaptive/ineffective responses of the psychosocial modes: self concept, role function, and interdependence. Builds upon knowledge acquired in study of anatomy, physiology, and developmental psychology. Clinical experiences occur in community and/or hospital mental health care facilities with adults/ children/adolescents. PRINCIPLES OF PHARMACOLOGY Introduces the basic principles of pharmacology. Focus will be on providing information relating to drugs: historical perspectives, drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination. Additional topics to be explored include, but are not limited to, legal and ethical considerations in drug therapy, drugs in sports, and alternative medicine regimes. PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN ADULTS Utilizing the RAM nursing process to promote adaptation in young, middle-age, and elder adults; focusing on physiological and behavioral deviations associated with ineffective human adaptive responses seen in compensatory and/or compromised health states related to oxygenation (respiratory, cardiac); fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base balance (renal/urinary); activity/rest (musculoskeletal); endocrine function. Use of current research findings in promotion of adaptive physiologic, self concept, role function, and interdependence responses in the adult. Clinical experiences occur in community and/or hospital settings. PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN ADULTS (II) A continuation of promotion of adaptation in young, middle-age, and elder adults. Utilizes the RAM nursing process to focus on physiological and behavioral deviations associated with ineffective human adaptive responses seen in compensatory and/or compromised health states related to protection (hematologic, immune, integument); nutrition, elimination (gastrointestinal); senses; neurologic function. Use of current research findings in promotion of adaptive physiologic, self concept, role function, and interdependence responses in adults. Clinical experiences occur in community and/or hospital settings. PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN ADULTS (II) For LPN-RN students that is a continuation of promotion of adaptation in young, middle-age, and elder adults. Utilizes the RAM nursing process to focus on physiological and behavioral deviations associated with ineffective human adaptive responses seen in compensatory and/or compromised health states related to protection (hematologic, immune, integument); nutrition, elimination (gastrointestinal); senses; neurologic function. Use of current research findings in promotion of adaptive physiologic, self-concept, role function, and interdependence responses in adults. Clinical experiences occur in community and/or hospital settings. PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN CHILDREN Utilizing the RAM nursing process to promote adaptation in children; specifically, focuses on adaptive and ineffective responses seen in infants, toddlers, preschool children, school-age children, adolescents, and their families. Physiological and behavioral deviations associated with ineffective human adaptive responses seen in compensatory and/or compromised health states examined. Use of current research findings in promotion of adaptive physiologic, self concept, role function, and interdependence responses in children and their families. Clinical experiences occur in community and/or hospital settings. PROMOTION OF ADAPTATION IN CHILDBEARING FAMILIES Utilizing the RAM nursing process to promote adaptation in childbearing families; specifically, focuses on adaptive and ineffective human responses seen in women, including childbearing years, neonates, and families. Physiological and behavioral deviations associated with ineffective human responses seen in compensatory and/or compromised health states examined. Use of current research findings in promotion of adaptation for human persons/family adaptive systems included. Clinical learning experiences occur in campus laboratory and in community and/ or hospital settings to develop skills in providing care for human persons/families. NURSING SEMINAR Current trends and issues in nursing, application of nursing care to promote adaptation for human persons and families, management principles, application for licensure, job seeking skills, and continuing education activities. TRANSITIONS TO PROFESSIONAL NURSING Course bridging the gap between basic nursing education and professional nursing practice. Current trends and issues in nursing; philosophies and theories influencing the nursing profession; role transition; analysis of the nursing process as applied to human persons, families, groups, communities, and society to promote adaptation in today’s healthcare environment.
