Courses I Teach

  • NURS 2100 - Human Growth & Development
    This course focuses on application of growth and development concepts to health promotion and care giving. Health and care giving are issues of everyday life. The study of growth and development can help caregivers to know a person more thoroughly and thereby become better caregivers than assisting individuals without such information guiding their interactions. Various theories of development areexplored and provide a basis for understanding people of all ages. Various developmental tracks are followed from birth to later life such as brain development, motor development, language, and cognitive capacities and skills. There is an emphasis on physical growth and discernable milestones or predictable events that define growth, in order to aid recognition when deviation from normal is significant. Appropriate health promotion at various stages of the lifecycle is stressed. Examples of this are seen in the lectures on infants and young children with emphasis on injury control, and adolescent suicide prevention. Understanding individuals at different levels of development and the influence of the ecological systems surrounding the person will help the caregiver to communicate with individuals on a much deeper level of understanding.
