Therapeutic Principles provides the theoretical principles and psychomotor skills associated with nursing interventions across health care delivery settings and populations. The course includes a classroom portion to enhance student comprehension of essential therapeutic principles and simulated learning opportunities to synthesize, apply, and refine clinical skills with the ultimate goal of providing quality and safe care to patients.
Using patient cases, this learner-centered seminar facilitates student exploration of patient- & family-centered care across the continuum of health care delivery and provides clinical experiences to apply critical elements of the BSN Essentials and IOM Competencies. Thinking critically, students synthesize prior and concurrent knowledge in their clinical reasoning and incorporate evidence-based practice across the lifespan.
