In this course, students focus on understanding the bio-physiological processes, the deviations from these processes, and an in-depth examination of the scientific concepts related to the biology of disease processes. Advanced practice nursing students learn how normal organ systems function and how organ systems are interrelated to help the body maintain homeostasis.

Students explore a variety of topics, such as immunity, inflammation, cancer, genetics, and cardiovascular organ system diseases. Course Prerequisites There are no prerequisites for this course.
