NUR 265 - Advanced Adult-Gerontology in Acute Care Practicum


Semester Hours: 1.5
This is the final clinical course for post graduate nurse practitioner students and focuses on the synthesis of theory, practice, decision making and the implementation of the role of the adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner. The course utilizes a comprehensive foundation of multisystem clinical problems and a precepted clinical practicum.  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, safe, 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.
