- Student Sample: Hi Professor and class, Some key concepts that I learned from Microbiology are about understanding the different microorganisms’ compositions and structures. It is also interesting to know what they do to our body causing diseases, how our immune systems interact with these pathogens and how we can prevent, control and treat them with available medicines and vaccines. In Microbiology, we explored the world of microorganisms by studying their pathogenicity, how they are being studied in the laboratory, their resistance to drugs, and the emerging disease they bring to humans/animals as host cells. The concepts learned from Micro will serve as a foundation that will help understand the complexity of Pathophysiology that deals with the study of diseases of the affected organs that disrupt their normal function. The knowledge gained from the next course of Pathophysiology will serve as a strong foundation for the nurses’ responsibilities in identifying the signs and symptoms of the patients’ condition to provide high-quality care. These responsibilities include diagnostic tests, managing the patients’ medications, treating their illness, and providing health care education to the patient and their families.
