NURS 6565 - Synthesis in Advanced Nursing Practice Care of Patients in Primary Care Settings


(5 cr.) Students in this synthesis course focus on clinical competence in primary care settings by building on knowledge and skills gained in previous courses. Through clinical practice, students build confidence as they begin the transition from the role of registered nurse to that of advanced practice nurse. Classroom activities and case studies enable students to explore the salient nurse practitioner practice issues involved in the delivery of safe, competent, high-quality, and cost-effective care of patients in a dynamic healthcare system. Clinical experiences in primary care settings provide students with the continued opportunity to develop, implement, and evaluate management plans for patients with complex health conditions. The application of knowledge in the management of clients and collaboration among the advanced practice nurse and the client, family, and interprofessional healthcare team are emphasized.
