Course Code: NURS 322

Credit: (3)

Growth & development are ongoing processes that represent the sum of the changes that take place in the lifetime of an individual. The entire course is a dynamic process that encompasses several multifaceted and interrelated dimensions: growth, development, maturation and differentiation. Understanding normal growth and development is a mandatory pre-requisite to understand the abnormal events that may occur during disease processes. Also, it helps planning interventions to promote healthy well-being at individual, family and community levels.
