NURS 2420 - Pediatric Nursing
A study of the growth and development of infancy through adolescence within the family context. Common acute and chronic health problems that occur during childhood will be incorporated through exemplars in which students must examine the current evidence base and prioritize care as a member of the multidisciplinary team. Students will collaborate in the development of a planned change related to safety needs across developmental stages in a variety of settings. Knowledge and skills related to quality improvement and informatics as they relate to the care of children will continue to develop through classroom and laboratory experiences. Laboratory experiences will take place in simulation, acute care, and community settings.
