R C 460 - Practicum IX: Senior Clinical III

5 Credits
This course is a continuation of the senior clinical sequence that provides the respiratory care student with opportunities to refine procedural and evaluative skills in the critical care area and the general floor area.  In the clinical setting emphasis is placed on the student’s ability to evaluate the patient’s clinical situation and recommend appropriate therapy modalities to the clinical instructor.  During the course the student will assume a progressively wider range of patient care responsibilities.
