NURS 640 - FNP Practicum

This course sequence is specific to the FNP option. NURS 640 and 641 are designed to provide a minimum of 600 hours of clinical practice in order to meet eligibility for the certification examination. Students identify and make arrangements with a MSN prepared NP or an appropriate designee for clinical practice with young, mid-life, or older families. Students enrolled in this clinical practicum will be expected to integrate values and ethics and apply the theories and concepts of the NP role in clinical practice with families throughout the lifespan. Emphasis is placed on comprehensive assessment, management, and evaluation of health care needs of the adults and children within a family system. As the culminating course for the Family Nurse Practitioner Role Preparation, this seminar will ask students to examine their role as health care providers and show how they have been influenced by their course of studies.
