NRSG 905. Primary Care Practicum III: Adult/Gerontology - Nurse Practitioner. 4 Hours.
This is the final practicum course in a series of three practicum courses that prepares the student for entry into practice as a primary care provider. This course is designed to prepare the adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner as a provider of direct health care services. The patient population of the adult-gerontology provider includes young adults (including late adolescents and emancipated minors), adults, and older adults (including young-old, old, and old-old adults). Within this role, the adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner student will synthesize theoretical, scientific, and contemporary clinical knowledge for the assessment and management of both health and illness states. Advanced practice competencies incorporate the health promotion, health protection, disease prevention, and management focus of the adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner practice.
