NURS 6551 - Primary Care of Women


(5 cr.)
How can a nurse practitioner decide what is important to focus on in a 15–30 minute appointment with a woman seeking primary, prenatal, or postpartum care? Students in this course gain opportunities to teach and promote wellness in women through the process of screening for common gynecological disorders, normal pregnancy, and other common health conditions that impact women’s health. Students learn to analyze data to interpret results for the benefit of women seeking assistance with planning healthy lifestyle behaviors. They also gain clinical experience in a primary healthcare setting that provides opportunities to increase competence in diagnosis, treatment, referrals, or follow-up care with a concentration on improving patient outcomes.
