NSSC 8110 - Independent Study in Specialty Nursing

Nursing Specialty Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

The purpose of this course is to complete the respiratory components that were not offered in the 2008 and earlier iteration of this course. It also satisfies the respiratory components of NSHA 7100 for students who successfully completed NSCC 7120. In this course, participants will explore the lived experience of an acute illness (e.g. COPD and respiratory insufficiency) while applying the theory of oxygen supply and demand, comprehensive assessments, and ethical clinical decision-making within the high acuity nursing practice environment.

Learning Outcomes

In this course, learners will have opportunities to use the processes of critical thinking, systematic inquiry, communication, collaboration, leadership and professionalism. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Differentiate high acuity nursing practice from current practice with respect to the role of the nurse, context of practice, nature of illness, and experience of the patient.
  • Analyze the oxygen supply and demand framework to formulate conclusions about cellular oxygenation and end organ perfusion.
  • Build on existing comprehensive assessment abilities to care for high acuity patients.
  • Identify potential and actual problems for high acuity patients using comprehensive assessment.
  • Identify and advocate for appropriate interventions by integrating multiple sources of nursing knowledge.
  • Prioritize interventions for complex high acuity patients informed by clinical and ethical decision-making frameworks.
  • Analyze and interpret arterial blood gases to identify problems with ventilation and oxygenation.
  • Apply the oxygen supply and demand theory using various patient scenarios, including respiratory insufficiency, pneumonia, and COPD.

Effective as of Spring/Summer 2020
