Abstract

The Continuum of Care clinical experience was developed to provide future nurses with practice in a managed care environment. Students see how the critical care patient's needs change during the recovery process and assist the patient with the transition to self-care at home. Patient and student evaluations indicate the experience increases students' understanding of the role of the nurse in managed care while facilitating patients' transition to the self-care environment.
