Prerequisite: Completion of NURS 6325.
This is the third in a series of four clinical practicum courses designed to develop skills in individual, group and family psychotherapy, psychosocial rehabilitation, case management, and prescribing of psychotropic drugs. Students are expected to continue to develop their skills in individual therapy, group work, family therapy, and psychopharmacology. The initial focus of the practicum seminars will be on development of prescriptive practice skills, and special topics in therapy. Other areas of direct care (e.g., consultation/liaison nursing, psycho-educational support for families, in-service education, and milieu therapy) are explored. Specific objectives for clinical experiences are negotiated between the student and her/his faculty and clinical agency supervisors. Psychopharmacology practice begins Fall Semester and continues Spring Semester in N6380, Practicum IV.
