Primary Care of the Adult/Older Adult Practicum III

Description:
Students further refine skills in critical thinking and clinical reasoning in the application of theory and research to practice. Assessment, diagnostic, therapeutic, and health teaching strategies are applied to a continuum of health promotion/illness problems, with a focus on the primary care of adults and older adults across the continuum of care. Seminars are grounded in learning the application of theory and research to the domains of practice of the adult/gerontological nurse practitioner, including the management of patient health and illness and the teaching-coaching function of the nurse practitioner and ensuring the quality of health care practices. Interdisciplinary collaborative practice skills are developed. Students develop role competencies under the supervision of nurse practitioner preceptors and faculty in urban health care settings.
