This course is the first in a sequence of courses that provide the student with in-depth knowledge of advanced practice nursing management of acutely and critically ill young, middle, and older adults from diverse populations. Emphasis is on the utilization of relevant theories, critical thinking, and evidence-based knowledge to formulate differential diagnoses, treatment plans, and optimal outcome parameters for physiologically unstable adults who have complex acute and critical health problems, are technically dependent, and are at high risk for developing complications. The focus of this course is to explore common issues in acute and critical care as well as complex neurologic, cardiovascular, and pulmonary problems in acutely and critically ill young, middle, and older adults.
