Online modules, workshop sessions and simulation exercises provide students with opportunities to practice health assessments, develop diagnoses, prioritise care, communicate ideas and consolidate knowledge to enable complex problem-solving. With a strong focus on critical thinking, communication and professionalism, this subject provides students with a foundation to move into highly skilled and autonomous nursing practice.
