Pediatric Primary Care Nursing IIIA: Clinical
This practicum focuses on the delivery of episodic illness care to children and adolescents in the ambulatory settings and on planning and managing the care of hospitalized children. The Pediatric Clinic is the main clinical setting. Here the student will learn how to assess children with common episodic illnesses, to develop and discuss differential diagnosis, to manage the care of children with minor illnesses, and to work with other health professionals collaboratively. When the illness requires hospitalization, the student will design and implement a plan of care, including discharge plans and teaching. Students utilize their knowledge of common child and adolescent illnesses and the information presented in M6630 and M8670 to assess and develop plans of care for all children and adolescents.
