Orem’s self-care model will be utilized by the student to apply critical thinking pathways to the individual with acute health problems. Scientific principles and clinical skills increase in complexity. Campus laboratory experiences enhance the development of increased dexterity and proficiency of techniques. Planned faculty-supervised experiences in acute care facilities provide students with the opportunity to implement their accrued knowledge and skill in providing nursing care. Clinical experiences are completed by observational experiences in specialty areas. This is an 8-week course which meets 12 hours for 4 hours credit. (Lec 2 Lab 2) 4 credit hours
