Clinical Decision Mak I: Adult

This course builds upon the principles presented in SHS 570 and is taught concurrently with NURS 580. It includes two components, a clinical practicum and a clinical decision-making seminar. The clinical component consists of laboratory and health assessment workshops where advanced health assessment skills including interviewing, history-taking, and physical examination are refined and practiced. Students work with model patients to learn these skills. Nurse practitioner preceptors guide students in developing expertise in conducting complete health assessments. Students utilize the nursing process in formulating plans for a diverse group of clients with multiple health issues. Conducted in a small group format, the clinical decision-making seminar emphasizes the synthesis of clinical and theoretical information. Using a case study format, information-gathering skills, clinical judgment, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills are analyzed. (1 credit) Corequisite: NURS 580
