RNFA Course Sequence
The RNFA program consists of two components:
- NUR-250 is an online course.
- The clinical practice component, NUR-252, which is seven credit hours and includes a 210-hour internship, takes place in the practice setting of the student.
The didactic online component of the program consists of four modules and includes assigned readings, online discussions/postings and written assignments. In addition, there are two required competencies: physical assessment and knot tying. Students will be required to have a signed learning contract with a physician preceptor by the end of the first module. The identified physician preceptor will be responsible for evaluating and signing the competency/skills checklist in NUR-250 as well as providing a clinical learning and clinical evaluation in NUR-252. The student is responsible for mailing the signed learning contract and signed competencies to the program coordinator.
The clinical portion of the program consists of 210 clinical hours under the direction of the physician preceptor. Clinical hours prior to the completion of NUR-250 will not be counted. The learning contract is designed to meet your individual needs and is used to provide the framework for your clinical practice learning.
