Part of the Prioritization of Care® Specialty Series, this virtual clinical presents the learner with a variety of adult medical care patients. Patients who present acute conditions requiring medical interventions and preparing for discharge should have their care managed in the medical unit. Adult patients who present critical conditions should receive care in an intensive care unit. These patients require further testing, extensive equipment, immediate intervention, and close monitoring. Adult patients presenting stable conditions requiring medical interventions and preparing for discharge should have their care managed in the medical unit. The learner must use clinical judgment skills to decide if their care should be managed in the medical or intensive care unit. Then the learners prioritize the order in which the five patients should receive care and implement individualized nursing interventions. This virtual clinical fosters critical thinking and builds confidence for students and practicing nurses in a clinical setting.
This clinical comes with ICU or Medical setting options and includes a variety of patient conditions such as dysthymias, pharyngitis, burn care, NSTEMI (myocardial infarction) and urolithiasis.
