This course prepares the student/learner to apply safe and effective care for clients with advanced medical and surgical problems. This course is designed to build on material from the previous medical surgical courses. Through the use of the nursing process, this course will build on the five Student Learning Outcomes of the curriculum: caring interventions, clinical competence and decision-making, communication, commitment to professionalism and collaboration and management of care. The student will prioritize the biopsychosocial needs of clients to promote optimal health and wellness. Lab simulation of selected clinical nursing skills will be used to facilitate meeting the needs of clients with advanced medical and surgical problems. During clinical, students will interact with culturally diverse clients. Clinical experiences in acute care settings and observational experiences in specialty settings may be scheduled to enhance the learning experience. Students must complete this course with a grade of "C" or higher. Lab fee required.
