This course is the second of three Acute Care Across the Lifespan courses. Students will develop a range of acute care nursing skills and therapeutic communications within a simulated laboratory environment. In Acute Care B students will focus on more complex assessment, planning, management, and evaluation of patient care and patient care outcomes for persons experiencing more severe acute and episodic illnesses and injuries. This includes acute perioperative, cardiovascular, respiratory, pain, and mental health care. Pathophysiology, pharmacology, lifespan, and ethnic diversity are key concepts that are addressed in relation to these health concerns.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
