Part of the Prioritization of Care® Specialty Series, this virtual clinical presents the learner with a variety of pediatrics patients with chronic conditions. Pediatric patients with chronic conditions presenting with acute episodes and requiring immediate medical attention should receive care on an inpatient pediatric unit. These patients require further testing, immediate intervention, and close monitoring. Continuous management of chronic conditions or low risk acute conditions should be managed in the outpatient setting. The learner must use clinical judgment skills to decide if their care should be managed in a pediatric facility. 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: asthma, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, crohn’s disease, acute heart failure and glomerular disease.
