An elective course in the Pediatric Nursing Specialty Program, this course is intended to provide students with additional clinical practice. The course learning intentions, learning activities, and evaluation strategies are established once the student and the course tutor have determined what a student’s learning needs are. The course may be used to provide novice pediatric nurses with additional time to focus on the basics, or it may be used to provide clinical practice in an area not addressed in the required clinical courses.
This is a CHALLENGE section. Departmental approval is required for this course. Please contact the Program Head at 604-451-7104 for approval.
