Summer maternal child clinical course for vocational nursing part time program. Application of concepts learned in prerequisite and corequisite theory and skills lab courses. Care of the normal and acute care of the obstetric, neonate, and pediatric clients.  An emphasis on normal growth and development process in relationship to any disease processes is emphasized. The family as a whole system of interactions for patient teaching is viewed in culturally sensitive and diverse settings (such as ICFDD, nursery schools and acute maternal child hospital settings.) Orem's self-care deficit theory is the base for applying the nursing process for the assigned clients.
