Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Advanced Practice Nursing Clinical Practicum III --- This capstone clinical practicum course prepares the acute care, gerontological, and psychiatric-mental health students to synthesize and apply concepts and knowledge critical for professional advanced practice nursing. Students will synthesize knowledge of health care delivery systems, organizational structures, finances, and resources with advanced physical and psychiatric assessments, pathophysiology, psychopathology, and pharmacology knowledge into the management plan of care for their patient population.  Emphasis will be placed on evidence-based strategies and optimize the delivery of accessible, cost efficient, quality health care by acute care, gerontological and psychiatric-mental health advanced practice nurses.  Other key issues include monitoring the quality of care and engaging in practice consistent with the authorized scope of practice.  Students, in collaboration with their preceptors, will be accountable for increasingly independent management of the holistic care needs of adults, older adults and older adults and psychiatric patients across the lifespan.  Students will be placed with clinical preceptors appropriate to their role (e.g. CNS or NP).
