Primary Care of the Adult/Older Adult Practicum II

Description:
Theory and research from multiple health disciplines are further integrated as students develop competencies in the role of adult/gerontological nurse practitioner. Under the supervision of nurse practitioners and faculty, students manage and coordinate primary care for multicultural adults and families experiencing health and illness problems across the continuum of care, including acute, subacute, community, home care, and long-term-care settings. The diagnostic, therapeutic, evaluative, consultative, and teaching functions of the nurse practitioner are emphasized. Seminar discussions include an exploration of the health policy issues that influence the delivery of health care to underserved urban adults and communities.
