Synopsis: This unit aims to introduce students to the basic concepts of physics, chemistry and biology that underlie the scientific aspects of nursing practice. Students will examine the structure of matter and chemical reactions; measurement, forces and energy; the cellular basis to human life; and the means by whereby body functions are integrated. These themes will be brought together in a detailed study of the structure, function and pathology of the integumentary system and the cardiovascular system.

Assessment: Laboratory work (5 reports): 30% + Mid-semester test: 25% + End-of-semester examination: 45%
