IntroductionThis chapter covers the systems of the body (apart from the skeletal system, which is described in Part I - Chapter 8).
Basic terms and definitions are covered briefly in Module 1, but a more comprehensive study guide can be found in Module 1 of Both Chapters 8 and 9.
The learning objective of this chapter is to establish an excellent knowledge of ANATOMY = the structure of the body, and PHYSIOLOGY = how the body functions. Each system of the body is comprised of a group of tissues and organs which work together to perform a specific function.
Students often do not find the theory of anatomy and physiology as interesting as the more practical subjects which involve hands-on nursing. However, a thorough grounding in the structure and functioning of the body is essential before you move on to more complex subjects in Year II such as Radiography and Medical Nursing.
The learning modules are as follows:
