Advanced Simulation for Women's Health Care Providers course offers students an opportunity to practice difficult and complicated ambulatory care and in-patient clinical situations in a safe, constructive and challenging environment. The course will follow the NWM/WHNP program of study, mirroring the topics covered in the other specialty courses. Students will actively participate in the care of simulated patients under the guidance of simulation faculty and will synthesize their learning in group activities before and after the clinical scenarios. These experiences are designed to facilitate student integration of didactic knowledge in to clinical practice and further develop knowledge and skills students have learned in prerequisite courses. These simulations may include themes such as: Hypertensive Disease of Pregnancy, Normal Labor and Birth, Shoulder Dystocia, Obstetric Hemorrhage, Neonatal Resuscitation, and Newborn Examination.
