Students explore the challenges and opportunities associated with transitioning to the role of registered nurse through innovative teaching and learning strategies. In addition, there is also an emphasis on developing resilience and self-care and a plan for ongoing professional development.

Laboratories and clinical experiences are aimed at integrating and consolidating learning from previous clinical subjects to ensure all graduates deliver optimal evidence-based care across a variety of health settings. Whilst on this final clinical placement, students further develop their clinical reasoning and critical thinking skills by competently caring for an allocated patient load overseen by a registered nurse.

In this subject, students are required to demonstrate competence to practice according to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Registered Nurse Standards for Practice (2016) and the Faculty of Health graduate attributes.
