Course Number: GSN 51055

In this core course, students engage in the advanced exploration of normal physiology and pathophysiology. Students will take an in-depth look at normal processes and changes in physiological parameters that occur resulting from disease as they occur across the life span. This course is a bridge between the basic sciences and the clinical sciences of advanced nursing practice. This course will expand knowledge of normal physiology and pathophysiology so as to expand the knowledge of concepts relevant for advanced practice nurses and to support more autonomous practice in the uniformed services health care system.
