ORDER NURS 3000 – Pharmacology in Nursing Papers

Course Description

Students will explore selected common health problems or situations in order to understand the impact on the individual, family, society and health care system. While developing their understanding, students will access information from a variety of sources including professionals in hospitals and in the community. A thorough exploration of the health situation will assist students in developing a professional context from which they can plan nursing care. The health situations discussed in this course are related to pregnancy, and gastroenteritis in children.
The teaching/learning strategy used in this course in problem based learning.

Course Format

Students will meet for three hours each week with a tutor to explore the situation and to identify learning needs.
Students will do research independently then work to apply the knowledge to the situation when the group reconvenes. The group is required to function effectively so students will focus on both developing group process skills and learning content relevant to the situation. Students will complete 2 situations during the term. A simulated patient may be associated with the health situation.

Evaluation

• Teaching of researched materials – 20% of the final mark
• Group skills – Satisfactory ability to function effectively in the problem-based group is requiredfor
satisfactory course completion.
(cont’d.)
• A paper that discusses a nursing or health topic relevant to Level 3 Family practicum course (3034), and an in depth exploration of related Level 3 Concept(s) and Context(s) – 40% of the mark.
• An oral problem solving examination – 40% of the mark.
Course Outcomes and Sub-Outcomes
The student will:
1. Develop a theoretical knowledge base related to nursing and specifically nursing’s role in relation to selected common health problems.
2. Develop an ability to accept a variety of perspectives related to the situation.
3. Recognize contextual influences as relevant to the situation.
4. Actively work in the group to develop a planned approach towards understanding the situation.
5. Teach researched topics to group members utilizing principles of teaching and learning.
6. Use facilitation skills in the group so that the group functions productively.
7. Develop ability to give feedback to other members of the group in a manner that facilitates the group goal.
8. Establish relationships with group members that achieve the tasks of the group.
9. Develop ability to monitor group process.
10. Reflect on own growth in developing effective facilitation skills.

In analyzing a situation the students may identify many other relevant content areas. These will be discussed within the context of the situation as time and group interest permits.
Process Threads Relevant to this Course
• Professionalism – This course promotes further development of a nursing knowledge base that is required for safe practice. Students are expected to be responsible and accountable to follow through with the work they have agreed to do.
• Communication – Working effectively in teams is a focus of this course. Experience is gained in
establishing relationships with members, sharing ideas, clarifying thought, giving feedback and monitoring group functioning. Working within the group students will increase their confidence in assessing group function by assessing own and other students’ facilitation skills and providing constructive feedback.
• Systematic Inquire – Research or evidence that is brought to bear on the health situation may be questioned by the group and the student will be helped to critique the data.
• Learning – Students are required to take responsibility for their learning and for preparing material for their fellow classmates that is accurate and relevant.
• Leadership – Students will demonstrate assertiveness, problem solving within the group, decision making and evaluation of group process.
The process of working in groups and bringing information to bear on a health situation for the purpose of understanding the situation more clearly promotes the development of a professional nurse. The purpose of understanding the situation may lead to developing a plan for approaching a simulated patient to tryout some aspect of the professional role.

Participation! Attendance
Dialogue contributes to both thinking and learning. Therefore:
1. Attendance is required in this course. The different viewpoints and experiences shared during the session will expand the thinking of all participants. Students are required to complete independent work to share with the group. This work is required for the group to accomplish its task and move on to other tasks. Therefore, if students are absent for more than 10% of the planned activities without a medical reason, they will not meet the attendance requirement of the course and may be withdrawn from the course. (See BeIT policy re:
Attendance.)
Group Skills Guidelines
1. All students must be judged satisfactory in group skills to receive the marks earnedfor teaching of
researched materials, the written assignment and the oral exam. If students are not judged satisfactory in group function, they will receive an unsatisfactory for the course.
2. Each student must participate to develop their group skills. Productive group function is a major expectation of this course. In this level there will be a focus on teaching researched material to group members. The purpose of this focus is to promote learning within the PBL group, and to develop skills which are integral to teaching patients and professional groups.
3. The course outcomes describe group skills expected in this course.
4. Weekly written and/or verbal discussions of group skills will occur so that individuals can use feedback to improve their skills, The student, their peers in the group, and tutor will assess each student’s group skills based on the identified criteria (see Group Skills/Participation Expectations), and give feedback to each other.
5. A midterm summary of group skills will be done to direct individual learning. A final assessment of each student’s ability to function in the group will be done at the end of the term.
6. At the final assessment, students will be expected to determine each of their peers group skills as a pass or fail, based on the behaviors outlined in the Group Skills/Participation Expectations.
7. All group members (self, peers, & tutor) will evaluate the teaching of researched materials.
8. Teaching of researched materials will count as 20% of the final course grade. Each time a student teaches researched topics in a PBL session a mark will be assigned: by each group member, the tutor, and the presenting student. Marks will be submitted on a form to the tutor at the end of each PBL session. The tutor’s mark will count 50% of the presentation mark, and the average of the group members marks and mark given to self will be 50%. The marks for teaching researched topics will be accumulated over the term, and used at the end of the PBL sessions to calculate what each student receives out of 20%.
