NURS 860

The intent of this course is to provide Nurse Practitioner (NP) students with the requisite knowledge and skills to integrate holistic, high-quality, safe, and developmentally appropriate principles into the primary care of older adults, including the frail elderly. The course is designed to enhance the NP student’s ability to implement the best evidence-based practice requirements inherent in meeting the primary care needs of an aging and older population.
