Opportunities to apply clinical diagnostic reasoning skills and decision making required for the assessment of population focused health problems are provided through labs including clinical simulation, and a clinical practicum. An on campus intensive of 3-5 days may be held at the beginning of the term. Prerequisite or corequisite: NURS 507 and NURS 509.
