NURS-639: Pathophysiology

3 credit hours

This course focuses on the study of the physiologic and biologic manifestations of disease and the adaptations that the body makes to the changes produced by the disease process. The course will build on the student's undergraduate knowledge in the sciences and explore how alterations in anatomy and physiology will disrupt the human body as a whole. Specific diseases will be selected to illustrate the alterations of normal historical and physical assessment findings, laboratory values, and diagnostic tests.  This class will be offered as a hybrid online class.
