NUR 262 - Advanced Adult-Gerontology in Acute Care II


Semester Hours: 5
This is the second of four clinical courses which focus on complex symptom management related to acute and emergent physiological alterations in endocrine, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and genital urinary function, along with multisystem disorders. Health promotion, health maintenance and health restoration are emphasized, along with risk assessment and preventative strategies. The pharmacological management of complex symptomatology is systematically integrated into the course. Differential diagnosis and comprehensive evidence based management of acute and emergent clinical problems in related clinical settings 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 simulations are specifically placed during the semester to build skills during the clinical practicum. Advanced practice role development is integrated throughout the course. An interprofessional faculty that are experts in emergency and critical care medicine will provide quality, holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care to assist the adult patient and their families experiencing acute and emergent conditions to better manage their health in a changing healthcare environment. Assignments and clinical placements will reflect the community needs, many of which are from underserved populations.
