NP 663 - Adult Gerontology Acute Care Practicum II

This course serves as a companion course to NP 662 and consists of two components, a clinical practicum (200-240 hours with an approved preceptor) and an online seminar. The diagnostic reasoning skills needed for clinical decision making in the advanced practice role are emphasized, including refining skills in the performance of a comprehensive health status assessment, development of differential diagnoses, planning, health promotion and care management of adult patients.
