NUR 534 - Psychiatric and Behavioral Health Nursing (2, 1)

This course presents the biopsychosocial model as a framework for understanding psychiatric mental health nursing. The nursing process is used to operationalize critical thinking and clinical decision-making in the care of individuals, groups, and families responding to complex neurobiologic and psychosocial alterations. Emphasis is placed on the development of a therapeutic nurse-client relationship and the utilization of therapeutic communication strategies. Biopsychosocial interventions including psychotropic medications, individual and group therapies, and psychoeducation will be explored. Legal and ethical issues relating to patients with psychiatric concerns as well as health policy and advocacy will be discussed.
