Nurse Practitioner Students

Inter-Professional Education: Nurse Practitioner

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 from Ontario NP programs only.

Kathryn Flanigan, NPThe 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, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse assessment and management; women’s health and contraception counseling including IUD insertions and endometrial biopsies; and smoking cessation counseling, prescription writing, and immunization.

Other professionals a student may encounter include:
  • physicians
  • pharmacists
  • family therapists
  • nurses
  • chiropodists
  • chiropractor
  • dietitian.

What makes our learning experience different is that students are exposed to a patient centred, evidence-based and inter-professional approach to care.
