Anatomy and Physiology for Nursing Practice

Module code: NU1012

This module is facilitated using a combination of lectures, clinical skills / simulation workshop, small group work anatomy tutorials in the Dissection Room and online learning packages. It will familiarise you with the anatomy and physiology of key bodily systems such as the gastrointestinal, renal and respiratory system etc. Your learning will be aided by practical sessions in the Medical School’s Dissection Room enabling you to apply your knowledge and understanding when developing the key skills to become a proficient nurse.

This module will also consider the application of anatomy and physiology to nursing across the lifespan of the patient – brought about by the normal ageing process of the patient, and you will be able to demonstrate application of this knowledge to key practical nursing skills, as well as apply the principles of medication calculation.
