NURS 516 Nurse Anesthesia Clinical Practicum III 2.0 Credits
This is the third in a series of six nurse anesthesia clinical practicum courses. In Clinical Practicum III, students have the opportunity to administer anesthesia to patients scheduled for more complex surgical procedures or to care for patients with significant co-morbidities. Students may also administer regional anesthesia and insert invasive monitoring lines. Subspecialty anesthesia rotations foster the application of theory to clinical practice and the development of competencies to safely anesthetize the pediatric patient.
College/Department: College of Nursing Health Professions Repeat Status: Not repeatable for credit

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
