Prerequisites: Completion of fourth year first term B.N. courses.
The purpose of this course is to provide students with experiences that integrate knowledge, skills, clinical judgement, and the professional nursing role in a specific area of nursing selected by the student in consultation with a faculty advisor. Clients may be individuals of any age, families, groups and/or communities. Care provided may be curative, rehabilitative, supportive/palliative in nature, or focus on disease prevention and health promotion. Assisting the student to make the transition from student nurse to the professional practise role will be a key element to this practise.
