This course is a 20 – 24 hour clinical course. 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 CRNBC certified practice. Comprehensive assessment integrates history or present illness and review of system into the sexual history when appropriate. 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. BCIT MUST ensure the preceptor and placement meets the requirements for CRNBC certification. Students enrolling in this course must have completed NSPN 7735, hold current CRNBC registration and require approval from the BCIT STI clinical placements coordinator, Sandeep Gill email@example.com to take the course. Preceptors and placement sites must be approved by the BCIT STI clinical placement coordinator, prior to the student beginning any clinical hours.
This clinical course requires program approval. Please contact the Clinical Coordinator, Sandeep Jawanda at firstname.lastname@example.org for approval. Students must be RN’s that are currently registered with CRNBC to participate. NPSN 7735 is a prerequisite to this course.
