NUR 236 Transition Course for Advanced Placement Students

Credits: (2)
This course provides an opportunity for the LPN student with prior nursing credits to consolidate and refine previously learned theory and skills, while emphasizing the underlying rationale and principles. It may also be offered to transfer nursing students upon faculty approval. Under the guidance of the instructor in a simulated clinical setting, the principles of the nursing process are applied. Opportunities are provided for the returning student to reduce the stress of re-entering school, to positively reinforce gained knowledge, and form support groups by focusing on the skills needed for interpersonal relationships. Appropriate clinical placement will be determined at the end of this experience. Students will spend a total of 56 hours in eight lab sessions in introductory clinical practice activities; in addition, students will be expected to spend substantial time to prepare for each session.
