Pharmacology for Health Professionals (NUR220) â€“ C. Wayne
This course introduces the student to basic principles of pharmacology and drug therapy. It is designed for students enrolled in the nursing program but other allied health majors who wish to gain a better understanding of drug therapy may also benefit from the course. This course may also be useful for any professional who is involved with medication administration or who works with clients for whom medications are a treatment modality. It is organized according to body systems and diseases, which places the drugs in context and provides a clear view of the connection among pharmacology, pathophysiology and clinical outcomes. Drug prototypes most representative in each drug classification are discussed in detail. This course was developed as a free elective for students in the School of Health Professions and Natural Sciences. Students are advised to check transferability to other institutions.
