Our Nurse Practitioner preceptors accept medical students, social work students and nutrition students for a half day of shadowing. Nurse Practitioner students are accepted in 3 month blocks.
The Nurse Practitioner student will be learn the scope of practice of a Nurse Practitioner, the model of holistic care, wellness care, episodic illness, health promotion, asthma and COPD education, prescription writing, and immunization.
What makes our learning experience different is that students are exposed to a patient centred, evidence-based and inter-professional approach to care.
