NSPE 7300 - Pediatric Clinical 1

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

In this 3 week preceptorship course, students develop and begin to enact their role in pediatric nursing by exploring the pediatric environment and assessing influences pertaining to pediatric patient and family health. Students will focus on applying and integrating theory and frameworks from the preceding courses, developing comprehensive assessment skills and applying this knowledge in the care of pediatric patients and their families. Students will use this knowledge to provide nursing care for pediatric patients experiencing selected health problems such as respiratory distress, cardiac failure, acute gastrointestinal illness, neurological illnesses and mental health challenges. In this experience students focus on applying theory related to oxygen supply and demand, comprehensive assessment, monitoring skills and clinical decision making. Working in partnership with patients, students have an opportunity to develop an understanding of patients' experiences of illness. Students will work with preceptors to promote safe, competent, and ethical nursing care. In addition, students will develop and foster collaborative relationships with patients, families, colleagues, instructors, and other health care providers. The core concepts of family-centred care and relational practice are threaded throughout pediatric course.
