NUR 282 - PMHNP II: Care of the Child, Adolescent, and Family Across the Lifespan


Semester Hours: 5
This is the second of four clinical courses in the Psych-Mental Health NP program.  It provides the theoretical content and clinical practice guidelines for intervening in psychiatric disorders of children and adolescents. Principles of assessment, interviewing, and diagnosis of children and adolescents and their family are discussed. The theoretical basis for a range of child and adolescent psychotherapeutic interventions are examined. Evidence-based therapies are integrated with the clinical practice guidelines directing the management of psychiatric disorders, with emphasis on children and adolescents.  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 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 the intensive learning sessions.  Students will participate in a precepted clinical rotation in a setting designed for mental health service delivery with children and adolescents. Clinical experiences will afford the student the opportunity to sophisticate their psychiatric diagnostic and assessment skills and integrate practice guidelines and evidence-based approaches into treatment planning and management.   Clinical rotations will include opportunities for students to participate in emergency telehealth experiences for a diverse population of clients from the New York metropolitan area. Students will also have a clinical experience where they co-lead a therapeutic group. Learning in this course is a collaborative process and in an interprofessional learning environment, providing quality, holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care. Advanced practice role development is integrated throughout the course.
