This course provides a theoretical basis for the body systems and clinical components that follow in the Critical Care Nursing Program. Topics covered will include: hormones, endocrinology, blood components and immunology. Normal physiology and common pathophysiological conditions will be reviewed. NOTE: Physiological Concepts of Critical Care Nursing I and II have replaced Foundations of Critical Care NURS8400. Students who have taken the Foundations of Critical Care course are therefore exempt from taking Physiological Concepts of Critical Care Nursing I and II.
