NRSG 685 - FNP Immersion Experience

1 hour
This course is organized to offer a hands-on experience for FNP students to acquire new knowledge on medically managing chief complaints and practice advanced nursing skills commonly encountered among patients across the life span in primary-care health care settings. The purpose is to create a safe environment that introduces the FNP student to their approaching practicum experience while engaging with their classmates. The immersion week will focus on evidenced-based experiential learning that will ensure high-quality patient outcomes under the supervision of the NP faculty members. There will be an emphasis on the transition into the FNP role as an ethical leader and the impact that the student has on the organization as a whole. The immersion experience should take place during, or as close as possible to, the first didactic and congruent practicum course. FNP students will receive credit for 45-direct practicum hours applied toward their 120-practicum hours in the first practicum course (or the one closest to when the elective is taken). Prerequisite(s): NRSG 627  and NRSG 677 . Corequisite(s): NRSG 678 . GR
