Graduate nurse practitioner students must be able to perform a thorough physical assessment upon an individual, in any practice setting. Advanced Health Assessment builds upon physical examination and history taking skills. The purpose of this refresher health assessment course is to ensure that students entering Advanced Health Assessment have the necessary psychomotor skills to perform a thorough physical assessment. Students will be evaluated in Advanced Health Assessment on their ability to perform these psychomotor skills accurately and competently. The refresher course provides students an opportunity for practice (without being graded) and to review content in anticipation of the advanced graduate level course.
