This course prepares the student in the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner role to be a beginning expert in the diagnosis and management of pediatric patient problems. In the residency, the student is expected to continue to grow toward becoming an independent practitioner, specializing in the care of children. The student further develops the pediatric NP role with patients/clients by providing pediatric health care services to clients (i.e. individuals, families, groups) emphasizing the promotion of health and the prevention of disease. Further, the student continues to apply knowledge and current research findings to the management of actual and potential health problems, which include common diseases and human response to disease.
