NUR 568 - Primary Care of the Childbearing Family Practicum

Students will refine their critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills throughout the course by applying the concepts of assessment, diagnosis, planning, clinical diagnostic decision-making, consultation, evaluation, and teaching to the care of the childbearing family across the continuum of health promotion, acute, and chronic illness. The course is grounded in application of theory and evidence-based research to the domains of practice for the family nurse practitioner with an emphasis on pediatrics and obstetrics. Students develop role competencies under the supervision of preceptors and with faculty support in family practice, primary care pediatric, and outpatient OB/GYN settings. Seminar discussions include an exploration of topics in ethics, disease management to improve quality, access to and cost of primary care for diverse populations and communities. 300 hours of clinical associated with the class.
