NUR 281 - PMHNP I: Care of the Adult Psychiatric Client: Group and Family Therapy and Care of the Older Adult


Semester Hours: 5
This is the first of four clinical courses that provides the theoretical content and clinical practice guidelines for intervening in substance use disorders across the lifespan, and complex psychiatric conditions including medical co-morbidities. The neurobiology of substance use is reviewed along with considerations of the impact of various substances on neural architecture. The theoretical basis for psychotherapeutic interventions is examined along with pharmacological approaches. Evidence-based therapies are integrated with the clinical practice guidelines directing the management of substance use disorders.  The course innovatively implements intensive didactic content both “frontloaded” at the beginning of the semester as well as at scheduled intervals during the semester, using an interactive case-based model. Students will also have simulation and standardized patient learning experiences for opportunities to hone skills during their clinical practicum. Interprofessional experts in the field psychiatry will provide high level content for the student in intensive learning sessions. Students will participate in a precepted clinical rotation in a setting designed for mental health service delivery with clients across the life span. Clinical rotations will include opportunities for students to participate in emergency telehealth experiences for a diverse population of clients across the lifespan from the New York metropolitan area. This will afford the student the opportunity to sophisticate their psychiatric diagnostic and assessment skills and integrate practice guidelines and evidence-based approaches into their treatment planning and management. Learning in this course is a collaborative process in an interprofessional learning environment, providing quality, holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care. Advanced practice role development is integrated throughout the course.
