Prerequisite: NURS 7617 & 6052.
This is the final clinical course for nurse midwifery students and solidifies their transition to a safe beginning practitioner. This residency experience is a minimum of eight weeks at a site that best matches students' learning needs. Faculty determine the site in collaboration with students. Experiences in a site will include clinical experiences, intrapartum on call, quality assurance activities, consultation, and meeting attendance. The Student Nurse-Midwife (SNM) must complete all experiences required by the site to successfully complete the nurse-midwifery residency experience. Students are expected to apply previous didactic and clinical knowledge and experience in the care of women throughout the life span. During the Residency experience, students function semi-autonomously under the supervision of nurse midwifery preceptors. This semester is very time intensive and students are urged to plan ahead to meet the required contact hours. This is a Credit/No Credit course.
