Anti-requisite(s): 91528 Health and Homeostasis


A knowledge of the structures (anatomy) and processes (physiology) of the healthy human being is essential to the Nursing practice. In association with 91562 Health and Homeostasis 1, this subject provides the underpinning anatomy and physiology for the subsequent pathophysiology and pharmacology subjects in the Bachelor of Nursing (C10122). Homeostasis is a state of internal physiological balance and it equates with a state of health in the person. Through the guiding principle of homeostasis, this subject describes the contribution of different organ systems to the maintenance of a state of wellness. The organ systems to be studied include the Nervous, Endocrine, Urinary, Immune and Reproductive Systems. This subject also introduces Blood Components and Haemostasis, Nutrition, Body Fluid Balance, and Principles of Inheritance.
