Pharmacology (IEN)

In this course, you will learn about basic pharmacology and the standards of medication administration. Topics will include administration of medications; legislation pertaining to drug administration; quality improvement; risk management, drug calculations, classifications, uses, mechanism of actions, side-effects and adverse effects of drugs. An emphasis is placed on the study of drugs and their action in the human body related to the nursing practice with a focus on Registered Nurse (RN) roles/responsibilities for you to develop critical thinking and critical inquiry for safe administration of medication. The lens of professional accountability will be used as a foundation for you to apply concepts such as harmful incidences, and near misses potentially affecting client safety. Using client care scenarios, you will be guided to apply pharmacology knowledge in nursing practice decisions.
