Consistent with the role of the Master's prepared nurse, this course is designed to help the learner develop expertise in assessing a client holistically, encompassing all dimensions of assessment. Spiritual assessment is often done inadequately, if at all. Through thorough assessment of spiritual needs and appropriate intervention, the nurse can assist the client to reach maximal levels of wellness.
