NUR 3314

This course is an introduction to pharmacology with emphasis on the actions, interactions, dosage, half-life, adverse effects, and nursing implications for medications in each drug classification. Emphasis on medications as a major treatment modality for all age groups will continue throughout the nursing education experience. In addition to learning key medications in each drug classification, topics will include the roles and responsibilities of the nurse in safe administration of medications, observation and documentation of desired and adverse effects from the medication and principles to be followed in patient teaching within a legal/ethical framework. Rural and frontier community characteristics that pose unique challenges or successful pharmacological therapies will be addressed. Knowledge of how medication effectiveness may be altered by circadian rhythms; incompatibilities with other prescribed rugs, over the counter drugs and alternative medications; conflict with nutritional intake and poor compliance with drug intake will be acquired in classroom, skills lab, and external lab clinical learning activities.
