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.
NSPN 7200 is one of three theory courses in the Perinatal Nursing Specialty Program. This course builds on the concepts presented in NSPN 7100: Healthy Childbearing Experiences. Social determinants of health, cultural safety, and trauma informed care provide the foundation for this course, which explores some of the more common perinatal health challenges. Multifaceted case studies assist learners to consider the diverse population of women and families they will care for. Health challenges include; preterm labour, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, multiple gestation/assisted human reproduction, post-term pregnancy/perinatal loss, gestational diabetes, and substance use/mental health in pregnancy. Comprehensive assessment and clinical decision-making are emphasized throughout the course.
