NSPE 7310 - Pediatric Critical Care Preceptorship 1

Nursing Specialty Pediatric Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

Course Details

In this preceptorship course, students develop and begin to enact their role in pediatric critical care nursing by exploring the pediatric critical care 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 critically ill pediatric patients experiencing selected health problems such as respiratory distress, cardiac failure, acute gastrointestinal illness and hemodynamic instability. 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 critical 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, relational practice and inter-professional practice, professionalism, communication, collaboration and partnership are threaded throughout pediatric critical care course.
