This is the capstone foundations subject for the program and provides an overview of studies to date and serves to consolidate the knowledge students have gained across the three years of the program. Knowledge of patient safety is revised using the Patient Safety Competency Framework (PSCF). Students draw on knowledge gained in previous subjects and apply their knowledge to case studies involving patients across the lifespan with complex and challenging needs, involving health breakdowns identified as National Health Priorities. This includes the planning and coordination of care backed up by evidence based rationales, professional and appropriate communication and conduct and the ability to make decisions based on an understanding of the legal and ethical principles that underpin nursing.

Current innovative topics in nursing are considered including informatics, genomics, climate change and delivering nursing care in complex situations such as disasters and pandemics.

A nursing researcher in the school is showcased in the subject to demonstrate the relevance and currency of nursing research.
