Course Memo

Pathopharmacology I builds on previous knowledge gained from anatomy, physiology, chemistry and microbiology. Pathopharmacology I provides the student with the opportunity to examine different systems of the body, disease, and its relationship to pharmacological interventions. Using the nursing process, the student will examine health deviations of the body, drug actions, and interactions in the body. Emphasis will be on the role of the nurse in creating a safe patient environment and the patient’s response to disease and drug therapy. (Prerequisite: microbiology, anatomy, physiology and chemistry or permission of the Dean. No co-requisites; may be taken as a Student-at-Large)
