( NRTAIOI-Foundations for Mammalian Phvsiolopv
This course is designed for students as an aid in preparing for graduate study in
physiology. Because students using this aid vary in their knowledge and
understanding of anatomy and physiology, this course covers topics ranging from
basic principles to the use of complex formulae. Through integration of graphics and
activities, this course is intended to help the learner grab an intellectual hold of
essential physiological concepts.
I -- 1
Rudimentary knowledge of basic principles, such as anatomy, biology, mathematics and terminology, is
necessary for mastery of this subject. After their initial introduction, these basic principles are repeated
throughout the course and an opportunity to apply these principles is offered.
NRS1A40.3-Foundations for Medicinal Chemistrv
The purpose of this continuing education offering is to suitably prepare the
Nurse Anesthesia graduate student for the rigor of the advanced medicinal
chemistry course WDC-532) which is a requirement of the program.

This foundations course will offer preparatory material in areas of organic
chemistry principles and bio-organic chemistry in 19 televideo lessons. The student will be introduced to
several chemical and biochemistry concepts; learn to identify functional groups and become familiar with their
chemical properties. Each lesson unit will include four practice problems to reinforce the application of
introduced concepts, mechanism and structures. An assessment will be offered to complete the course.
Those who have already taken a course in organic chemistry will benefit from this continuing education
offering because it highlights those principles important to an understanding of concepts that will be
emphasized and related to in the required nurse anesthesia medicinal chemistry course (MEDC-532).
