NURSING 7017HO - Extended Clinical Practice I

Teaching Hospitals - Semester 1 - 2014

This course is designed to prepare students for extended clinical practice in their chosen specialty. The course will begin by focusing on advanced assessment, investigations and differential diagnosis. Students will then work with their clinical mentors to become competent in the clinical skills they require to function in their scope of practice as a nurse practitioner. Students will be required to develop a nurse practitioner portfolio. This will include case studies and exemplars demonstrating complex decision making and client care along with records of education sessions and professional activities. Students will be required to perform three patient assessments to be evaluated by their clinical mentor.
