Maternal-Child Health
NUR 2462C
This course is not ordinarily counted
in the Associate in Arts degree. Concepts
from nursing fundamentals are adapted
to the nursing care of the family. Through
classroom and clinical experiences, students
gain knowledge of the processes, problems,
and deviations from health which influence
or alter the normal course of parenthood and
child care. Studies of women’s health, the
reproduction cycle, growth and development
of the child, well and ill child care, and the
impact of illness and hospitalization on
the family are provided in the classroom.
These studies provide the students with the
theoretical basis to safely apply the nursing
process in caring for obstetric and pediatric
clients in a variety of health care settings.
Clinical Nursing III
NUR 2818C
Clinical Nursing III provides students
with the opportunity to build upon
knowledge and skills developed in previous
nursing courses. Students are introduced to
implementing principles of leadership and
management. Classroom content relates to
the preparation oflhe student for assuming
the role of professional nurse. Prioritization
and delegation are important concepts in
this course. The clinicalcomponent is an
individualized experience that is selected
in collaboration with the faculty and an RN
preceptor. One alternate preceptor may be
designated. Guidelines for level II practicum
experiences are defined by the Florida
Board of Nursing in the Nurse Practice Act
chapter 64B(15 a-g). All preceptor practicum
experiences are to be obtained on an adult
medical-surgical unit or floor. The only
exceptions considered are for LPNs and
require the pennission or the faculty and
program director. Tbe clinical component
of practicum will not commence until all
requirements for NUR 2462C are successfully
met. The preceptor must be approved by the
nursing program and must be an RN licensed
in the State of Florida. It is the responsibility
of the student to meet with the preceptor to
review clinical expectation and goals prior
to beginning clinical time. The student must
obtain a resume from the preceptor and a
signed letter of agreement.
Philosophy and Religion
Introduction to Philosophy
An introductory, undergraduate course
that focuses on an examination of basic
problems of philosophy. Includes a 6,000
word writing requirement.
Introduction to Ethics
An introductory, undergraduate course
that offers a critical evaluation of the major
theories of moral values. The major emphasis
of the course is the application of theory to
contemporary ethical problems. Includes a
word writing requirement.
Women in the Bible
An introductory, undergraduate course
focusing on the wisdom and witness of
women in Old and New Testament texts. The
course will reflect the most recent scholarship
in the biblical field. During the past 20 years
biblical commentators, archeologists and
theologians have labored to liberate today’s
students from the patriarchal bias common
to the academy of the 19th and early 20th
centuries. Contemporary scholarship shines a
potent, clear light on the social, political, and
economic dimensions of the biblical
narratives. The course will reflect the labor
of these modern scholars who reconstruct
the hidden history of women, and other
dominated classes of people portrayed in the
texts. Fresh insights into the ancient
texts nurture the rising consciousness of
woman and men around the world who find
themselves in oppressed circumstances. The
course will affirm women acknowledging
them as fully human partners
with men in the biblical witness. Includes a
word writing requirement.
NewTestament Survey
An introductory, undergraduate course
that focuses on the New Testament. Major
Topics: A study of the historical background
of the New Testament World, the life
and teaching of Jesus, the growth of the
Christian movement, and the emergence
of early Christian literature. Attention is
given to problems of date and authorship
of individual writings. Includes a 6,000 word
writing requirement.
World Religions
A study of the major religious traditions
of the world noting distinctive features
and common elements. Topics include:
The Ancient World, Hinduism, Buddhism,
Religions of China, Japan, and India, Judaism,
Christianity, and Islam. Includes a 6,000 word
writing requirement.
Physical Science
Descriptive study of the elements
of astronomy including the chemical
composition and motion of the planets,
their moons, comets and asteroids. Theories
of solar system formation, the Sun and
the universe are discussed and compared
based on the physical and the chemical
nature of matter. Such current topics as the
Greenhouse Effect” caused by increased
levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
and “The Hole in the Ozone Layer” caused
by the release of Flurochlorcarbons into the
atmosphere are used to help understand the
chemical nature of the atmospheres of other
planets and their moons and the implications
for planet Earth. Mathematical procedures
are not stressed. Use of telescopes and
computer software enhance the study of
celestial objects. Recommended for liberal
arts majors.
