Maternal and Child Nursing (Baccalaureate)
8.0 / Upper
The UExcel Maternal and Child Nursing examination is based on material typically taught in a sequence of courses in maternal and child nursing. This 8-credit, upper-level undergraduate course measures the ability to use the nursing process in the nursing management of the childbearing and childrearing family, of normal pregnancy, and of the family with a high-risk pregnancy and a high-risk neonate. Also includes nursing management of the well child and family, and of the ill child and family, from infancy through adolescence. (* This exam does NOT apply toward the Excelsior College nursing degrees. Multiple-choice examination.)
