COURSE DESCRIPTION:



NR 201 Nursing Across

the Life Span

presents health care needs relative
to specific functional health patterns of the individual. The
introductory phase of this course provides learning experiences to initiate the transition of the student from the practical
nursing role
and philosophy to concepts inherent in the practice and
philosophy of the associate degree nurse. Emphasis is placed on therapeutic
communication and on the holistic needs of individuals across the life span. Using the nursing process, the student learns to

intervene
therapeutically with and on behalf of client
s, families, and significant others having well defined acute health needs. In addition to the
campus laboratory, a variety of structured clinical settings are used to provide correlated learning experiences. Legal aspec
ts, ethical
issues, and dimensions o
f contemporary nursing are integrated throughout the course.


PREREQUISITE:

Graduation from an approved practical nursing program,
PN licensure,
and admission to the
associate
degree
nursing program

ASSIGNMENT POLICY:

Students are expected to complete all assignments before coming to class or lab.


All clinical assignments shall be submitted by 5 pm on Thursday of the clinical week. Late assignments will
receiv
e a 10% grade reduction per day. Assignments submitted more than 5 days late will receive no credit.

One late contract will be provided and may be used for 1 weekly clinical assignment . The clinical instructor
shall be notified on Thursday, in writing
or by email, that the late contract is being used. Clinical assignments
shall then be submitted no later than 8 am Monday of the following week and will receive no grade reduction.


Due to the extreme importance of confidentiality in the clinical settin
gs,

documents
are to be identified
by

client initials only. Any communication

that compromises the confidentiality of client(s) will result
in
consequences as outlined in the program handbook.



COURSE POLICIES

In addition to the course polices below, s
t
udents in the Nursing Program must adhere to the polic
i
es outlined in
the Cloud County Community College Student Handbook

and the
Nursing Program Handbook
.


ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

It is imperative that each student does his/her own work. The following policy
will apply to all students in
class.

Infractions of academic integrity

(honesty) shall include:



Using another student’s work without giving the student credit for the work. In other words, taking
someone else’s
work

and placing your name on it and claimin
g it is yours, using another student’s quiz,
or help on a quiz/exam.



Giving another student your
work

knowing that he/she intends to turn it in as his/her own creation,
giving another student your quiz, or help on a quiz/exam.


It is not an infraction of t
he policy to help another student understand how to do an assignment if he/she does
the work himself/herself with your assistance.


Cheating:


“Cheating means getting unauthorized help on an assignment, quiz or examination.”


1.

You must not receive from any

other students or give to any other students any information, answers, or
help during an exam.

2.

You must not use unauthorized sources for answers during an exam. You must not take notes or books
to the exam when such aids are forbidden, and you must not r
efer to any book or notes while you are
taking the exam unless the instructor indicates it is an “open book” exam.

3.

You must not obtain exam questions illegally before an exam or tamper with an exam after it has been
corrected.

University Assessment and Intellectual Skills Program, Western Michigan University)


Plagiarism:


“Plagiarism” means submitting work as you
r own that is someone else’s. For example, copying material from a
book, the Internet, or another source without acknowledging that the words or ideas are someone else’s and not
your own is plagiarism. If you copy an author’s words exactly, treat the pas
sage as a direct quotation and
supply the appropriate citation. If you use someone else’s ideas, even if you paraphrase the wording,
appropriate credit should be given. You have committed plagiarism if you purchase a term paper or submit a
paper as your
own that you did not write.



PENALTIES FOR INFRAC
TIONS:

A
ny infraction will receive zero (0) credit on the assignment quiz or exam and may result in a recommendation
for dismissal from the nursing program.
