Students assume professional nursing roles in meeting basic needs by demonstrating skills in communication, critical thinking, and the nursing process. Students interact with culturally/ethnically diverse clients and integrate legal/ethical issues into the plan of care. Content regarding medical-surgical disease processes is continued, giving the student the basis of knowledge to assist the client to reach optimal status on the health-illness continuum.
