COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1.   Use previously learned concepts in NRV 51 to the nursing care of the normal and at risk maternal child client.
2.   Analyze, compare and contrast the perinatal process to identify abnormal signs and symptoms involving each perinatal stage of development.
3.   Formulate a plan of care consistent with practice guidelines for a maternal child client including more complex disease states (in collaboration with a Registered Nurse).
4.   Apply theory to practice to describe and assess for potential complications of the prenatal, intrapartal and postpartal periods with appropriate nursing interventions for each.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. Practice maternal child nursing within the scope of vocational nursing.
2. Correlate the normal physiologic processes to the identification of abnormal signs and symptoms in the hypothetical scenarios of each of the stages of the perinatal period.
3. Describe benefits of prenatal care and identify vital factors and nursing interventions related to potential and actual problems.
4. Articulate the stages, symptoms and common nursing interventions for each of the phases of labor/delivery process.
5. Describe potential complications of the prenatal and intrapartal period and identify nursing interventions and nursing diagnosis that would be appropriate, given a hypothetical clinical scenario.
6. Articulate normal and deviations of normal assessment of the newborn.
7. Identify safety measures important to the care of the new mother and her newborn.
8. Articulate common drugs, side effects and uses for the obstetric and the pediatric client.
9. Participate in planning patient teaching guides for hypothetical scenarios.
10. Formulate hypothetical care plans for a variety of situations in the care of the hospitalized (related to developmental phases).
11. Articulate the phases of growth and development using Erickson's theory as a guide for the stages from infancy through adolescence.
12. Plan teaching guides for children and parents related to the phases of development (including nutrition, safety and play needs for each stage of development).

Topics and Scope
Untitled document
1. Reproductive and physiologic processes of normal perinatal period
  a. Prenatal care including signs and symptoms, common discomforts and interventions
  b. Labor and delivery: including role of the vocational nurse (VN), stages of labor and common interventions and care of the labor patient (including monitoring, common abnormalities of the birth process and interventions (i.e. bleeding, diabetes, preterm labor pregnancy induced hypertension and the use of analgesia/anesthesia)
  c. Postpartum period: including normal phases and bodily changes and common interventions for normal and abnormal problems (i.e. bleeding infection, eclampsia, diabetic mothers).
  d. Newborns: including immediate assessment after delivery and normal growth and development phases from intrauterine life through neonatal period. Apgar scores, head-to-toe assessment and basic safety issues, nutrition and patient teaching for new parents are reviewed.
  e. Special needs of newborns requiring intensive care and supportive care to parents (genetic defects, teratogenic effects, problems with infection, gestational age, drug abuse, etc.
  f.  Care of emergency and scheduled cesarean section with common problems and interventions postop

  b. Nutrition issues (breastfeeding vs bottlefeeding, special needs of toddler, school aged, and adolescent children, including deficits).
  c. The meaning of play and needs for each phase of development.
  d. Parenting concerns and issues for each phase of development
  e. Child abuse issues and nursing interventions
