Part of the Prioritization of Care® Specialty Series, this virtual clinical presents the learner with a variety of pediatrics patients with acute conditions. Pediatric patients with acute life-threatening conditions and require further testing, medical intervention, and monitoring, should receive inpatient care in a pediatric facility. Pediatric patients with acute illnesses or injuries that are not life threatening and require continuous management should be managed on an outpatient basis. The learner must use clinical judgment skills to decide if their care should be managed in an inpatient pediatric care clinic or with outpatient services. 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 inpatient or outpatient setting options and includes a variety of patient conditions such as acute laryngotracheobronchitis, group A beta- hemolytic streptococcal infection, mild traumatic brain syndrom, type 1 diabetes mellitus and partial-thickness burn.
