Nu251 Adult Nursing Practicum 4 credits
This is the capstone course of the ADN, entry-level Nursing program. Students in this course examine health issues that are complex and encompass multiple systems. In the clinical setting, students will demonstrate the ability to apply the Nursing process to the care of individuals with complex needs. Current evidenced-based research and implications will be incorporated throughout. As this course is now split from the previous component, the focus on this course will provide the opportunity for students to focus and deepen their knowledge base. As this is one of the last courses, students will be expected to synthesize and apply principles and concepts to complex patients. The instructional methodologies utilized in all Nursing courses attempt to address the auditory, visual and kinesthetic learning needs of Nursing students. (90 clinical hours per semester.) Prerequisite: Nu250 with a minimum grade of C+.
