foundations of medicine II

engage in in-depth, hands-on learning to prepare for the Kansas State CNA examination.

Foundations of Medicine II is an immersive experience in multiple aspects of the art and science of healthcare. This course is either a continuation of Foundations of Medicine I or an entry point for students with academic or extracurricular exposure to the healthcare industry.  This course is designed for deeper exploration into concepts of health and professionalism. The centerpiece of Foundations of Medicine II is Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) coursework and clinicals. Students engage in in-depth, hands-on learning to prepare for 25 hours of clinical experiences. Successful completion of CNA coursework and clinicals allows students eligibility to sit for the Kansas State CNA Exam at the end of the semester. Beyond CNA work, in the classroom, students will engage in case studies with expanded medical terminology, and research projects exploring clinical judgment, ethics, and evidence-based healthcare. Outside the classroom, students will participate in numerous observational visits to a wide variety of medical and healthcare facilities. Students will also expand on their focused area of interest through continuation of CAPStone Projects.
