1) assist patients with human reproduction health problems/needs
2) apply theoretical concepts and clinical practice to these patients while considering developmental, psychosocial and cultural/spiritual needs
3) apply critical thinking skills to analyze patient conditions and
4) share their findings with their classmates.
