NR293 Pharmacology for Nursing Practice Medication Teaching Plan Guidelines

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is for the student to synthesize pharmacological knowledge (i.e., core drug                   knowledge, core patient variables, and nursing implications) of pharmacotherapeutic agents into a useful                  teaching and learning tool for nurses and patients.

Course outcomes:  This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

CO1 Apply the concepts of pharmacotherapeutics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacogenomics to the use of specific medication classifications in specific health conditions and in consideration of medication side/adverse effects, nursing implications, and medication teaching. (POs 1, 2, and 3)

CO2 Apply principles of health promotion, as well as illness and injury prevention, to promote safety and effectiveness of commonly used pharmacologic therapy across the lifespan, taking into consideration sociocultural, genetic/genomic, developmental, and gender implications. (POs 3 and 8)

CO3 Utilize the nursing process in understanding the effects of drug therapy on health outcomes across the lifespan within the framework of a diverse population of individuals, families, and communities. (PO 4)

Due date: Your faculty member will inform you when this assignment is due. The Late Assignment Policy applies to this assignment.
