ANPH 150 - Anatomy and Physiology

This course focuses on an introduction to the typical structure and function of the human body according to a body system approach; preparing graduates for the health care environment with a unique body of knowledge, combining both arts and science.

Unlike traditional Anatomy and Physiology courses which follow a sequence of starting with cells and ending with reproduction, this course is designed to cover topics essential to clinical nursing twice within the course. The first half of the course will cover the basics of all eleven body systems from a basic nursing perspective. The second half of the course will be a review of those same basics from the first half of the course, and then building on those fundamentals to deal with more clinically advanced and complex topics. This design ensures that anatomy and physiology concepts essential to the nurse will be emphasized and repeated during the course.
