NUR 282 - PMHNP II: Care of the Psychiatric Client Across the Lifespan


Semester Hours: 5
This is the second of four clinical courses that provides the theoretical content and clinical practice guidelines for intervening in dysfunctional coping patterns and psychiatric disorders of individuals across the lifespan. The theoretical bases for a range of psychotherapeutic interventions across the lifespan are examined; cognitive treatment and select evidence-based therapy techniques receive particular emphasis.  These evidence-based approaches are integrated with the clinical practice guidelines directing the management of highly prevalent psychiatric disorders. Neurobiological models of development provide a theoretical basis for understanding the development of psychopathology and the interpersonal approach to building relationships. 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.  Interprofessional experts in the field psychiatry will provide high level content for the NP student in the intensive learning sessions.  Students will participate in a precepted clinical rotation in a setting designed for mental health service delivery. This will afford the student opportunities to develop their psychiatric diagnostic and assessment skills and integrate practice guidelines and evidence- based approaches into their treatment planning. Opportunities to participate in emergency telemedicine experiences for a diverse population of individuals across the lifespan in the New York metropolitan area will be available. Clinical and simulation and standardized patient learning experiences will provide opportunities for students to develop their psychiatric diagnostic and assessment skills, and integrate practice guidelines and evidence-based approaches into their treatment planning. Learning in this course is a collaborative process and in an interprofessional learning environment, providing quality, holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care.
