NUR 562 - Advanced Pharmacotherapeutics for Family Nurse Practitioner


This course will provide the pharmacological foundation for appropriate utilization of pharmacotherapeutics across the life cycle. Specifically, the course provides knowledge and skills to assess, diagnose, and treat common health conditions across the population from pediatrics to geriatrics. Emphasis is on safe, cost effective, evidenced based prescriptive practice. The necessity of individualized patient decision-making based on holistic care, co-morbidities, economic, and cultural diversity is stressed. This course must be completed within three years of enrolling in the first of the FNP clinical/practicum course combinations (either NUR 567/NUR568 or NUR569/NUR570; whichever is taken first).
