because inpatient care focuses increasingly on treating the sickest of the sick, the need for advanced practice nurses to provide and coordinate care in emergency departments, trauma, critical care, and intensive care units has never been greater.
the curriculum includes patho-physiology, pharmacology, monitoring and clinical management of critical care, trauma, and emergency department patients, critical analysis of practice issues, and clinical experiences in advanced practice roles.
our graduates go on to become clinical nurse specialists, clinical educators, clinical researchers, trauma coordinators, and several other leadership positions in both established and evolving critical care, emergency, and trauma nursing roles.Last edit by NRSKarenRN on May 28, '12
