Applied Anatomy and Cell Biology for Advanced Clinical Decision Making

Course Number: GSN 53013
3 Credits

This foundational didactic and human dissection course is designed to facilitate a thorough understanding of human anatomy. It is a specialized course, which includes the study of the cellular and functional aspects of the four tissue types of the body. This knowledge is expected to enhance understanding of human anatomy in subsequent advanced practice clinical settings. The course will be presented in several different modalities: didactic lectures, laboratory prodissection/dissection, and student presentations. Clinical application of anatomical structures for each advanced practice nursing specialty will be stressed. Operational readiness issues and clinical application will be emphasized throughout the course.
