NURS 587 - Acute-Critical-Chronic Clinical Management II


This is a hybrid course. This course provides the adult-gerontological acute care nurse practitioner (AG-ACNP) student with both didactic and clinical experience in order to develop and refine the knowledge and skills needed to deliver care to adult patients with complex acute and chronic diagnoses in the context of the AG-ACNP scope of practice. Emphasis is placed upon the student’s increased knowledge base and clinical experience, analyzing typical and atypical presentations of complex acute or chronic comorbidities with increasing independence in managing patient care to sustain or restore physiological function, and if necessary implementing palliative care and end-of-life care. The AG-ACNP student continues to utilize evidence based clinical decision making, problem identification and management, health promotion and client and family education and counseling.
10 credit hours
