Description

This assignment is designed for pathophysiology students close to the end of the course.  These students are primarily in a BSN (Bachelor Degree Nursing) program, and they take pathophysiology as one of their last General Education courses before starting their professional Nursing program.  The assignment is primarily to assess higher order learning outcomes.

Background and Context

This assignment assesses “specialized knowledge, applied learning and intellectual skills” at the level of the Bachelor’s degree as well as “applied learning” at the Master’s level.  You will find the detailed assessed outcomes highlighted in the assignment next to each question.

This activity is intended to be assigned to the pathophysiology students close to the end of their course.

These students are primarily in BSN (Bachelor Degree Nursing) program and they take the pathophysiology as one of their last General Education courses before starting their Nursing professional program. This assignment is primarily to assess the higher learning outcomes, such as intellectual skills and applied learning, although it will also be used as an assessment of specialized knowledge.

Reflections

This assessment has been designed based on previous experience in the field, and I am excited to initiate it in my pathophysiology class.  It will work well as a case study for medical students as well as other health related students. It is also recommended for critical thinking courses as well as those focused on patient management and related areas.
