This course builds upon the principles presented in SHS 570 and is taught concurrently with NURS 560. It includes two components, a clinical practicum and a clinical decision-making seminar. The clinical component consists of a health assessment workshop where advanced health assessment skills including interviewing and physical examination are refined and practiced. Students work with model patients to learn these skills. Nurse practitioner preceptors guide students in developing further expertise in conducting health assessments of children. Students utilize nursing process in formulating plans for a diverse group of parents and children. Conducted in a small group format, this seminar emphasizes the synthesis of clinical and theoretical information. Using a case-study format and drawing from the students clinical practical, information-gathering skills, clinical judgment, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills are analyzed.
