NUR 254 - FNP IV: Advanced Care of the Adult and Gerontological Patient and Their Families


Semester Hours: 7
This is the final of four clinical courses which provides a comprehensive foundation of multisystem hematology, oncology, neurology, psychiatry, genitourinary, and musculoskeletal/orthopedic clinical problems and a precepted primary care clinical practicum. Students will make home visits to patients seen in the primary care setting as well as those discharged from the hospital. The home visit model engages patients and their communities in a health partnership, which improves health outcomes, and decreases readmissions. The course innovatively implements intensive didactic content frontloaded at the beginning of the semester as well as scheduled at intervals during the semester, using an interactive case-based model. Students will also have intensive advanced skills lab and simulation which are specifically placed during the semester to hone skills during their clinical practicum. Simulation, laboratory, imaging and clinical skills and correlations will provide greater depth of learning. Oral examinations will be introduced in this course. Advanced practice role development is integrated throughout the course. Learning in this course is a collaborative process in an interprofessional learning environment providing quality, holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care. Assignments and clinical placements will reflect the community needs, many of which are from underserved population.
