NUR 250 - Care of the Family Using Evidenced Based Diagnosis and Management


Semester Hours: 3
This course builds upon the student’s scientific knowledge of comprehensive health assessment, pathophysiology and pharmacology within the context of disease management of populations across the lifespan. This course utilizes problem based learning and an evidenced based practice framework to promote and develop student nurse practitioner ability to apply clinical reasoning, diagnostic and therapeutic decision making in challenging patient scenarios. Each session will clarify and integrate challenging legal and ethical issues related to role transition of nurse practitioners with more than one population or specialty scope of practice as a nurse practitioner in New York State. Using the theory, principles, tools and methods presented during the course, students will use scientific literature, costs, risk-benefit profiles, and other forms of supporting evidence to create management strategies for treatment of families. Students will also be exposed to the psychomotor skills required for performing advanced diagnostic procedures, including the principles that promote safer, higher quality technical skill performance and minimize risks to patient and operator. Students will identify individual strengths and abilities through reflection of their Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ) assessments, administered during orientation. The didactic component of this course will focus on role development, leadership, diagnostic testing, and billing and coding which are integral for the family nurse practitioner’s practice.
