Undergraduate

Description

The subject consolidates and develops clinical practice undertaken over the course to prepare students for entry to the nursing workforce as a member of the health care team. The central focus of the subject is delivery and coordination of care for chronic and complex conditions, in order to practise as a beginning registered nurse. Students undertake an extended and continuous clinical placement experience that reinforces clinical learning integral to nursing practice and provides an environment for consolidating nursing practice highlighting leadership, management and workplace culture. The clinical placement experience is complemented by experiential workshops focusing on multidimensional simulated cases involving common chronic and complex conditions, and multiple morbidities. The workshops are conducted to develop students' abilities, knowledge, techniques and skills for integrated care across a diverse range of different patient care situations. Students undertake inquiry-based reflection and clinical judgement to plan, initiate, and evaluate care.
