Medical Surgical Nursing and Pathophysiology

by Prof. Lawes, Paula Ruedebusch

Medical-surgical (med-surg) nursing is the foundational unit and heart of the nursing profession—what one might consider to be the bread-and-butter setting. Many new graduate nurses start their professional careers in med-surg units because this setting exposes them to a broad patient population with many health challenges. They may then branch out to more specialized and advanced units, such as the emergency department or the intensive care unit, after working for a couple of years gaining many skills on med-surg floors.

In this course, we will introduce you to the vast array of pathophysiologies, pharmacology, laboratory interpretations, and treatments that are commonly seen in med-surg units.
