PATIENT HEALTH & PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT TRAINING

Certificate Program

The Health Assessment program at Springfield College provides students with knowledge, information and skill in the area of patient health assessment. The program is designed to assist nurses to refine their assessment skills in order to acquire data to complete health history and physical examination of various adult patients. The content will focus upon patient health history, culture and diversity, interviewing, mental status, communication and nurse-patient relationships, safety, cultural beliefs and values. Physical and psychosocial assessment of body systems like respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, nervous and genitourinary will be examined across the lifespan. Emphasis will be laid upon differentiating normal from abnormal findings to assist the nurse to move appropriately from data collection to nursing diagnosis, including trans-racial considerations. Assessment of the family, as well as domestic violence, screening and assessment are integrated. The learning design will include various methodologies, such as lectures, case studies, reflective practice, demonstrations and critical discussions. Students are expected to take an active participation in group discussion, assessment, demonstrations and practice.
