This subject assists students to prepare for their professional role and explore the attributes required to take on clinical leadership and team work responsibilities in health care. Students explore critical issues that impact on nursing practice, with an emphasis on the effects that power, policy and professional relationships have on health care quality and future directions for nursing in local and international health care contexts. Topics are introduced that reflect current health care challenges and opportunities for nursing to make a positive difference to health service delivery. Policy reports are explored enabling students to incorporate them into existing ethical and legal frameworks thereby increasing their ability to make considered clinical judgements. Professional resources that facilitate successful transition to the registered nurse role are introduced.
