Nursing Specialty Pediatric Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

This second required theory course in the Pediatric Nursing Specialty builds on NSPE 7100: Pediatric Nursing Theory 1. In NSPE 7100 you were introduced to the concept of comprehensive pediatric assessment. In this course you will build on what you learned and will have the opportunity to apply the concepts to patient based case studies, further enhancing your ability to think critically about your assessment findings. As well as a comprehensive assessment, each case study will focus on a particular body system. You will have the opportunity to complete focused assessments based on the presenting health challenges in the case study. Specifically, these modules address; fever and sepsis, dehydration, shock, respiratory distress, developmental delay and autism, UTI, neurological concerns, cardiac defects and concerns, orthopaedics, pain management, mental health, bullying, nutrition, aboriginal health and dermatology. Each case explores developmental, family and assessment issues. You will also have the opportunity to incorporate the oxygen supply and demand framework into your assessment. Additionally this course will provide you with the opportunity incorporate the concepts of; partnership with families, growth and development, social determinants of health, and the effects of stress on children and families. The children in the modules of this course face health challenges that bring them into contact with nurses. We will use the information about these health challenges to examine the effects on the child, and the role of the nurse in the care of the child and family.
