NUR 251 - FNP I: Care of Women Across the Life Span


Semester Hours: 5
This is the first of four clinical courses which provides a comprehensive foundation in the primary care needs of women. Clinical issues and problems unique to women from menarche through senescence, health promotion, disease prevention, well-women care, prenatal and postpartum care and common and complex women’s health issues will be emphasized. Students will participate in a precepted clinical rotation in a women’s healthcare setting that provides the opportunity for health assessment of the female patient across the lifespan and formulation of a comprehensive plan of care. Transitional care must be anticipated and planned for by primary care providers, as patients return to their community following hospitalization. The course innovatively implements intensive didactic content both frontloaded at the beginning of the semester as well as scheduled at intervals during the semester, using an interactive case-based model. Learners will also have intensive advanced skills lab and simulation which are specifically placed during the semester to better prepare learners for opportunities to perform and hone skills during their clinical practicum. Simulation, histological and clinical skills and correlations will provide learning opportunities for learners and provide greater depth of content. Clinical practicums will include primary care obstetrics and gynecology, with the inclusion of the delivery of care through home visits. 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.
