Advanced Pathophysiology 6501 Walden University

To be effective, nurses must have a thorough awareness of pathophysiological disease processes that occur across the life span. It is the goal of this course for students to gain a thorough awareness of bio-physiological processes, as well as deviations from these processes, as well as an in-depth analysis of scientific concepts related to the biology of disease processes. Advanced practice nursing students study about the normal operation of organ systems as well as how organ systems interact with one another to assist the body maintain homeostasis (balance). Students obtain the knowledge and understanding of pathophysiological disease processes that they need to establish suitable treatment regimens for patients at all stages of their lives, from childhood to old age. Immunity, inflammation, cancer genetics, and cardiovascular disease are just a few of the topics that students learn about in class. They also examine a range of disease processes, including hematologic, renal, neurologic, gastrointestinal, and reproductive disorders.
