BIO 2000 - Introductory Microbiology for Nursing

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): BIO 1080 and BIO 1090 and one semester of chemistry (CHE 1800 or CHE 1100) or permission of instructor

Description: This course is a non-majors introductory microbiology course specifically for pre-nursing.  It will not count toward a biology major or minor.  This course emphasizes the interplay between microorganisms and humans including infectious diseases and the immune system and has an emphasis on the control of microbial growth, spread of microorganisms, and their ability to cause disease and circumvent the immune system and antimicrobials. The course is accompanied by a laboratory that introduces the ubiquity and diversity of microbes, basic microscopy, identification of microbes, physical and chemical control of microorganisms to enable nursing to learn how to avoid the spread of microorganisms in clinical settings.

Note: The Biology Department requires students who do not attend the first week of scheduled laboratory sessions to drop that course. Those students who do not drop the course will not be permitted to attend labs the rest of the semester, will receive an F in the course, and will be responsible for all tuition and fees incurred.
