NSPN 7736 - Sexually Transmitted Infections Management Clinical Course

Nursing Specialty Perinatal 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

​This course is a 25 hour (20 - 24 hours of clinical time, with the remaining hours for assessing clinical competency) clinical course for which NSPN 7735 is a pre-requisite (NSPN 7710 is also strongly recommended). Within the scope of nursing practice with clients experiencing, or at risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), students will learn various clinical skills designated as BCCNM certified practice. Students enrolling in this course must have completed NSPN 7735, hold current BCCNM registration. Preceptors and placement sites must be approved by BCIT Faculty, prior to the student beginning any clinical hours or registering in the course. Practicum sites for this clinical must be done in health authority sponsored or health authority-affiliated sites (placements do not occur in private clinics). Students entering STI employment are encouraged to arrange their preceptor led placements within the community that they will be practicing. In the event that students cannot arrange their own preceptorships BCIT will request the placement and place the students. Placements are prioritized for students who will be immediately practicing within STIM certified practice. Practicum hours are completed in a series of 3 – 4 hour shifts usually spanning 6 – 8 weeks depending on clinical site. Registration is rolling and there is no cut-off dates, registration is approved when the placement site is confirmed.
