There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject focuses on a number of discrete, interdependent and foundational nursing issues that have been identified as particularly challenging and important to beginning practice and learning as a student nurse. These issues are explored through workshops which allows students to gain knowledge in each topic area and actively use this knowledge in the workshop situation to build meaning, understanding and connection through guided experiential immersion in inquiry-based activities. This subject is aimed at strengthening core literacies related to practice readiness which include: interpersonal skills, intrapersonal knowledge, quality and safety awareness, behavioural management skills; dealing with challenging behaviours such as anxiety, anger and grief, leadership, self awareness and self concept, and the assessment and management of withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs.
