Bachelor of Science: Nursing 2008Southeast Asian College, Inc. - Quezon City, PhilippinesBachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in the Philippines is a four-year degree program that teaches students the necessaryskills and knowledge to care for the sick and injured. The program revolves around four main components; health promotion,disease prevention, risk reduction and health restoration. The course consists of subjects in General Education (English, Mathematics, Filipino) and Professional Nursing (Theoretical Foundations in Nursing, Nursing Care Management).As a student, we were trained to use the most important concept in the program which is the Nursing Process (Assessment,Diagnosis, Planning, Implementation and Evaluation). The program also prepared us to be able to accurately perform health assessment, important nursing interventions, perioperative care, emergency and disaster response and medical documentation. We learned how to deal with patients having special needs such as those who are suffering from mental illnesses(Bipolar Disorder, Multiple Identity Disorder), developmental disorders (Autism), degenerative disorders (Parkinsons Disease), physical disabilities (comatose patient) and those who need palliative care (terminally ill/dying patients). The teachingmethods used are classroom discussions, return demonstrations (an educational technique in which a student demonstrates whatthey have just been taught in front of a clinical instructor) and clinical exposures in different healthcare settings.
