This course addresses the unique developmental, biological and psychosocial health and illness needs of the pediatric population. Emphasis is placed on exploring strategies that assist children and their caretakers to prevent and/or minimize the effects of illness and disability and promote, maintain and restore health. Concepts that will be emphasized throughout the curriculum reflect the core educational competencies of the curriculum: (a) caring interventions, (b) clinical competence and decision-making, (c) communication, (d) commitment to professionalism and (e) collaboration and management of care. The clinical component provides guided clinical experiences that allow students to demonstrate caring and clinical competence in the application of the nursing process in selected pediatric healthcare environments. Students interact with culturally diverse clients and families with an emphasis on the integration of critical thinking, effective interpersonal communication, professionalism and legal and ethical standards. The clinical simulation laboratory experience reinforces the concepts acquired during the theoretical portion of the class and allows for student collaboration and decision-making in a supported environment. Lab fee required.
