Parent teaching of 3yrs old child with asthma

  

A critical component of pediatric nursing is teaching parents how to care for their child, particularly during an illness or after a procedure.  To develop this skill, the student will complete a parent teaching project. 

Students will be assigned a topic and developmental stage upon which to focus.  With that information, the student will need to determine what health education (AKA parent/patient teaching) needs to be conducted prior to this virtual patient being discharged.  The students will then role-play the teaching session, using a student chosen by the instructor as the “parent” and with the rest of the clinical group observing.
