PRCM 6820 - Advanced Pediatric Nursing Practicum II: Complex Care


(2 cr.)
Pediatric nurse practitioner students will synthesize their knowledge from previous clinical courses and experiences related to the issues and trends in healthcare needs of children from birth to young adulthood, including well-child care, age-appropriate anticipatory guidance, and the diagnosis and management of various chronic and complex pediatric conditions. The focus of this course is on pediatric nursing practice in the outpatient care environment of the pediatric patient. Students gain confidence in clinical experiences in a primary healthcare setting where they learn to take a subjective history, complete a thorough objective examination, conduct appropriate assessments, identify differentials, make referrals, and plan both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapeutic treatment regimens for well and sick pediatric patients with common chronic and complex conditions.
