NRNP 6566 - Management of the Acutely Ill Adult-Gerontology Patient


(3 cr.) This course is the first of three clinical courses in the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care curriculum. Students explore and integrate concepts of pathophysiology, pharmacology, assessment, and collaborative management of adolescents, adults, and older adults who are acutely/critically ill or experiencing an exacerbation of a chronic health problem. The clinical focus is on the role of the acute care nurse practitioner working with an interdisciplinary team across settings to facilitate the patient’s return to optimal health. Topics include cardiac, pulmonary, and renal issues, as well as cardiac, septic, distributive, neurogenic, and hypovolemic shock.
