NURS 3244 Childbearing Nursing Theory (Fall/Spring: 3 )
The course focuses on concepts associated with the unique responses of families during the childbearing cycle, normal and high risk pregnancies, and normal and abnormal events in women's health. Current multidisciplinary research in women's health with a focus on the childbearing cycle, including genetics and cultural competence, is presented. Evidenced based nursing practice for the childbearing family is discussed. The nursing implications of attending to both the physiologic and the psychosocial needs of the childbearing family are reviewed. Emphasis will be placed on AWHONN and ACOG standards of care.
