The skills and techniques to perform culturally competent comprehensive health assessment and physical examination for generalist-nursing practice are refined. Nursing assessments of normal health parameters serve to differentiate the health patterns of culturally diverse individuals across the life span.

Standardized nursing classification systems are used throughout the course.
