This course is designed to review the cognitive affective and psychomotor skills needed for licensed practical nurses who wish to seek advanced standing into an associate degree program preparing for the registered nurse role. This course provides a bridge from practicing LPN to RN student. The student learning outcomes are designed to review and update nurses in fundamental and basic concepts and skills necessary for active clinical practice in an acute care clinical setting. The theory component of the course combines lecture and discussion of a variety of concepts related to clinical practice. The clinical component allows time for the student to apply theory to actual clinical practice in the hands-on care of adult patients and to update their clinical skills. The clinical rotation will take place in an acute care setting that provides a variety of adult in-patient services. The course is also appropriate for inactive nurses (RN or LPN) who wish to return to active nursing practice. This course is not intended to replace a complete orientation to a clinical agency.
