8 credits ( 4 didactic hours / 4 clinical hours )
- NUR 411
- In this course clinical experience, seminars, and topical discussions provide an opportunity for synthesis and integration in all aspects of care for the advanced practice primary care nurse practitioner (NP). Content relating to the natural history of health and disease across the adult lifespan (older adolescence through frail older adults) is explored. Students will acquire an expanded perspective of the NP’s role as a skilled clinician, professional colleague, consultant, and leader. The provision of primary care to patients over an extended period of time allows the student to share in the responsibility and accountability of clinical practice while attending to the needs of individuals, families, communities, and organizations.
