Primary Care of the Adult Practicum

Students refine their advanced practice skills with further attention to the application of theory and evidenced based knowledge to the role of the family or adult/gerontological nurse practitioner. The assessment, diagnostic, therapeutic, evaluative, consultative, and teaching functions of the nurse practitioner role are examined within a professional, ethical, and legal framework. Students continue to gain experience in the assessment and management of health promotion, episodic and chronic illness problems in adults with the supervision of nurse practitioner or physician preceptors, and faculty support. Seminar discussions include an exploration of special topics in disease management to improve quality, access and cost of primary health care for diverse populations. Diversity, health care disparities, and ethical issues will be discussed as they relate to the clinical topics.
