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



This subject offers students the opportunity to undertake supervised and supernumerary extended clinical practice of 100+ hours. This enables the application of coursework learning to nurse practitioner practice in conventional health environments and situations. This predominately field-based subject provides supervised and supernumerary clinical practice placement to meet the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia's standards of practice for nurse practitioners.

This subject concentrates on knowledge and skill development in holistic patient health assessment and increasing clinical reasoning and decision-making capabilities necessary for advanced and extended clinical practice with a primary health care focus. The students focus on the development of a foundation of advanced clinical skills and knowledge necessary for the capable practice as a nurse practitioner.

During the subject students work in an advanced practice role (as demonstrated by completion and verification of the Australian Advanced Practice Nursing Self-Appraisal Tool), as a nurse practitioner student, supervised by a suitably qualified clinical support team from their facility in combination with an academic mentor appointed from the University.

The content is influenced to some extent by the student's own learning objectives and needs. Congruent with the subject learning objectives and in consultation with the clinical and academic support teams, students create personal learning outcomes that demonstrate the knowledge and skills required for the broad nurse practitioner role.

This subject must be successfully completed before 92666 Integrated Professional Practice 2 can be commenced.
