NSER 7300 - Emergency Nursing Clinical 1

Nursing Specialty Emergency Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

Nurses develop and begin to enact their role in emergency nursing by exploring an emergency environment and assessing influences pertaining to patient and family health. Building upon theory and frameworks from the preceding courses, nurses focus on developing comprehensive assessment skills and applying this knowledge in the care of patients and families. Effective clinical decision making in the context of common, less acute patient presentations is another focus of this clinical experience. In addition, nurses will develop and foster collaborative relationships with patients, families, colleagues, instructors, and other health care providers. The development of critical thinking, systematic inquiry, and communication skills will be emphasized throughout this course. Clinical placements will be available in either a three and one-half week block or on a part-time basis over eight weeks.
