Clinical Management Courses and Objectives

Scope of Practice
Student APRNs, as well as all APRNs, are required to function within a scope of practice supported by theory and clinical experience that are provided during their academic preparation. APRN students in the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care (AGACNP) specialty may provide care only to adult patients 17 years of age and above. Under no circumstances should they provide care to children.

CLINICAL MANAGEMENT COURSES (TOTAL OF 720 CLINICAL PRACTICE HOURS)
