N588: Maternal and Child Care

This course facilitates the attainment of knowledge, competencies, and skills in assessing, diagnosing, and managing women's health and children from birth through adolescence. Common complications encountered in peripartum care will be explored as well as the care of children, including the recognition of acute and chronic conditions. The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) focuses on the care of the family unit and seeks healthy quality-based outcomes. Emphasis is placed on the effective and safe management of these patients via advanced practice nursing, non-pharmacological, and pharmacological approaches, as well as health promotion and disease prevention. Conceptual models and theories will be applied to enhance the care plan and evaluate patient outcomes. Knowledge learned in this course will be applied in the preceptorship learning experience.
