I. Course Description
A clinically oriented course in which the student has the opportunity to both reinforce and
enhance theoretical nursing knowledge and apply this knowledge in the clinical area.
II. Course Objectives/Outcomes
At the completion of NU 204, the student will be able to:
1. Communicate therapeutically with the individual.
2. Apply the nursing process in the care of the individual.
3. Demonstrate the principles of health-teaching into the care of the individual.
4. Practice nursing within the framework of ethical/legal guidelines.
5. Utilize an individualized care plan in simple health care situations.
6. Practice collaborating with various members of the health care team.
7. Demonstrate an awareness of environmental and cultural influences in the care of the
individual.

D
F
= 74-76.99
= 71-73.99
= 68-70.99
= 65-67.99
=  64.99
A C is an unacceptable grade for this course. C+ or above is a passing grade. As such,
failure to obtain a C+ or above in NU 204 will result in the inability to progress to Level III.
VI. Attendance Policy
Students will not be allowed into clinical laboratory sessions until they have shown
evidence of completion of their mandatory health work and/or current BCLS/CPR status.
Moreover, for each clinical laboratory session missed as the result of incomplete mandatory
health work and/or current BCLS/CPR status, students will receive a failing grade for that day’s
clinical laboratory session objectives. Therefore, delay into clinical laboratory sessions for
incomplete mandatory health work and/or BCLS/CPR status will make it impossible for students
to attain satisfaction of course objectives and will result in course failure.
MANDATORY attendance is required at all scheduled nursing skills laboratory sessions
and clinical laboratory sessions. As such, attendance at each scheduled nursing skills
laboratory sessions and clinical laboratory sessions will be taken.
UNPREPAREDNESS for nursing skills laboratory sessions will result in removal from the
nursing skills laboratory until the situation is corrected to the satisfaction of the instructors and a
failing grade for that day’s nursing skills laboratory objectives. UNPREPARADNESS for clinical
laboratory sessions, including perioperative, G.I. laboratory, and outpatient clinic experiences,
violations of uniform regulations, and late arrival, will result in removal from the clinical
laboratory session until the situation is corrected to the satisfaction of the instructors and a
failing grade for that day’s clinical laboratory session objectives.
Each student is responsible for reporting his/her absence from a scheduled nursing skills
laboratory session and/or clinical laboratory session to the instructors PRIOR TO the time
arranged for the experience.
Make-up work for UNAVOIDABLE absences from nursing skills laboratory sessions
and/or clinical laboratory sessions is to be INITIATED BY THE STUDENT with the instructor
within 48 hours of the missed experience except in emergency situations. However, any makeup for absences from nursing skills laboratory sessions and/or clinical laboratory sessions will
be conducted at the discretion of the instructors and, IN NO CASE, is such make-up time
guaranteed.
ANY absences from scheduled nursing skills laboratory sessions and/or clinical
laboratory sessions will make it impossible for students to attain satisfaction of course
objectives and, therefore, will result in course failure.
