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.
This two-week clinical course provides the opportunity to engage in clinical learning that is tailored to the student’s individual needs. Using a preceptorship model in an NICU, students will have an opportunity to build upon prior clinical experiences of caring for infants with common health challenges. The following key areas of practice will be used to guide clinical learning: assessment and care planning, medication administration, thermal management, nutrition, infection control, and developmentally supportive and family-centered care.
Department Approval is required for registration into this clinical course. Contact the Program Head at 604-451-6837.
