NUR 867 - Special Topics in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care IV-Practicum


Admission to Adult-Geriatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner concentration, concurrent election of NUR 866  and consent of Program Director. (3)

This practicum provides the student with foundational experiences in a clinical setting as well as in the simulation lab in order to observe the concepts and skills discussed in the concurrent theory course. This course provides clinical opportunities in the acute care setting to provide safe, cost-effective, legal, and ethical care for young, middle, and older adults with acute and critical episodes of common acute and chronic health problems. The focus is on the refinement of critical thinking and clinical skills required to provide comprehensive physical and functional assessments, apply diagnostic reasoning, and plan evidence-based interventions for acutely and critically ill young, middle, and older adults from diverse populations. Experiences in the clinical setting should emphasize toxicology, nutrition, MSOD/SIRS, and end-of-life issues in acutely and critically ill young, middle, and older adults. Students are required to come to campus for an on-site simulation experience. Graded ABCDE
