NUR 252 - FNP II: Care of the Infant, Child, Adolescent and their Families


Semester Hours: 5
This is the second of four clinical courses and focuses on providing a comprehensive foundation of the care of infants, children, adolescents and their families’ responses to health and illness. Age-specific health promotion and disease prevention, psychosocial health and development will be the focus of this course. Differential diagnosis and comprehensive evidence based management of common acute and primary care problems in children in the primary care setting will be emphasized. 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. An intensive advanced skills lab and simulation are specifically placed during the semester to build skills during the clinical practicum. A precepted clinical practicum in primary care pediatrics will provide opportunities for learning the broad spectrum of common infant, child and adolescent health care problems. Advanced practice role development is integrated throughout the course. An interprofessional faculty will provide quality, safe, holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care to assist pediatric patient and their families better manage their health in changing healthcare environment. Assignments and clinical placements will reflect the community needs, many of which are from underserved populations.
