NUNP 6560 - Advanced Practice Care of Adults in Acute Care Settings II
(5 cr.) Students in this course will advance their clinical competence in the care of patients in acute care settings by building on knowledge and skills gained in the NURS 6550. Through clinical practice, students will build confidence as they begin the transition from student to advanced practice nurse. Classroom activities and case studies will enable students to explore the complex healthcare system, including multiple governmental, social, and personal resources available to acutely ill adults across the age continuum. With clinical experiences in hospital settings students will be provided with the continued opportunity to develop, implement, and evaluate management plans for adults and older adults with complex acute, critical, and chronic illness. The application of knowledge in the management of patients and the collaboration between the advanced practice nurse and the patient, family, and interprofessional healthcare team are emphasized.
Note: This course requires a minimum of 160 practicum hours.
