This Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner clinical course focuses on the diagnosis and management of complex adult patients who are physiologically unstable, technologically dependent, and/or are highly vulnerable to complications. Emphasis is placed on prioritizing assessments and interventions according to the patient’s most immediate and potentially life threatening/altering need. Content is focused on evidence-based, pharmacologic and complementary comprehensive management with special considerations for geriatric and other high risk patients from admission to discharge. Integration of critical thinking skills, information technology, risk/benefit analysis and quality indicators are used to develop and evaluate care plans.
