In the second preceptorship course, students focus on applying and integrating nursing knowledge to provide care for critically ill pediatric patients and their families. In this experience the student focuses on providing care for patients' experiencing trauma, acute respiratory failure and hemodynamic challenges. Students have opportunities to further develop their comprehensive assessment skills by providing safe, competent, and ethical nursing care for patients requiring mechanical ventilation and advanced hemodynamic monitoring in collaboration with their preceptors. Working in partnership with patients and families, students will develop an understanding of unique patient and family situations. Students will have opportunities to think critically, selecting and evaluating therapeutic interventions as they focus on developing interventions, clinical decision making. Participating and reflecting on ethical issues and collaboratively providing family-centred care are concepts that nurses continue to develop. Through the use of learning activities (case studies, application of a clinical decision making framework, journaling and personal reflection) students are provided with opportunities to build on the communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and systematic inquiry skills necessary to provide child and family-centered care in the pediatric critical care setting.
