NURS 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 medical and surgical patients in acute care settings. 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 resources and support systems available to acutely ill adolescents, adults, and older adults. Clinical experiences in hospital settings will provide students with the continued opportunity to develop, implement, and evaluate treatment plans for patients with complex acute, critical, and chronic illness. The application of knowledge in the management of medical and surgical patients and the collaboration between the advanced practice nurse and the patient, family, and multidisciplinary healthcare team are emphasized.
