NURS 3403U – High Acuity Nursing


In this course, students will explore and apply concepts central to nursing practice in high acuity settings. Through readings, in‐class discussions, guest presentations, demonstrations, and simulations, students will develop knowledge and skill in a range of competencies associated with high acuity nursing practice. Topics such as advanced health assessment techniques, care of patients experiencing a range of acute physiological health challenges (e.g., renal failure, acute myocardial infarct, respiratory failure), and the required nursing interventions (e.g., dialysis, ECG monitoring, cardioversion and defibrillation, mechanical ventilation) will be included. A holistic approach will be employed in which person‐centred, relational and reflective nursing care and evidence‐based practice are foundational. The role of the Registered Nurse in providing care to patients in high acuity settings within the context of interprofessional team practice will be examined. Course includes online learning component with required weekly skills demonstration lab and simulation lab.
