The focus of this elective course is to increase efficiency and self-confidence. The student works as a member of a nursing team in association with a faculty member and RN preceptor. The exposure to entire shifts under the direction and guidance of a preceptor is expected to increase students' abilities to identify factors influencing client needs. The nursing process is used to determine appropriate nursing interventions with emphasis on organization and priority setting. Increased competency in nursing skill performance, as well as increased ability to evaluate self-performance and increased levels of self-confidence are anticipated.
