Nursing Care of Adults with Acute and Chronic Illness II

Unit One


This week we are just getting started! I will walk you through the process of setting up your own CI Keys account in class. Please check out CI Keys prior to coming to class so we can talk about what it is and what it means to have a digital identity!

This unit will cover the first three weeks of class (August 31, September 7, and September 14). Please refer to the course content outline for your reading assignments each week. We will discuss fluid & electrolyte balance, acid-base balance, renal disorders, and genitourinary issues, and male reproductive system. The first exam will cover this unit content.
