158-003 – Practicum I
Advanced Assessment is the foundation of the Post Graduate Certificate in Remote Nursing Program. This practicum offers the student the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills of Advanced Health Assessment and Differential Diagnosis in preparation for the pharmacology and therapeutics course. Students will work in a health centre with a preceptor to practice data collection and physical assessment with a view to diagnosis. Students will experience the reality of the expanded practice nurse as part of the interdisciplinary team providing care in geographical isolation. Individual learning needs of students will help direct practicum placements.
