|ATC||NURNP||2194||3||Clinical Emphasis: Trauma Emergency Preparedness|
This course is designed to develop a comprehensive theoretical and practical foundation for advanced nursing practice in the management of selected dysfunctions/alterations commonly seen in the traumatized adult. Didactic content focuses on information central to planning, implementing and evaluating therapeutic regimens for patients with problems commonly seen in the trauma, emergency, and disaster settings. Through ongoing clinical experience, students implement the nursing process when caring for patients who emergent, traumatized, or involved in disasters, and apply the clinical decision-making process in the care of these patients in all phases of the trauma cycle. Aspects of health promotion and maintenance appropriate to these patients and families will also be emphasized.
