Description

This subject focuses on students developing their written, oral and interpersonal communication skills in the context of effectively nursing a diverse Australian population. Core literacies related to practice readiness including interpersonal skills, intrapersonal knowledge, behavioural management skills, and dealing with challenging behaviours such as anxiety, anger and grief are introduced. Students are guided to reflect on their own identity and values and how these affect the way they interact with others. Different world views and representations of diverse groups are explored as well as concepts of power and privilege. Learning occurs in a non-confrontational, respectful, collaborative and collegial space.
