This course considers how nursing influences the health and healing capacities of children, adolescents and their families, as well as those of older adults. It focuses on the knowledge and skill acquisition needed to care for patients at particular moments, across the continuum of care and through transitions in an illness experience. It addresses major common pathways of pediatric illness from infancy through adolescence using a developmental systems approach. Emphasis is placed on family-centered care. The course also identifies the major milestones of aging and how nursing supports patients and families through the aging process and into end-of-life care.
