This is the capstone subject for the Bachelor of Nursing. The subject requires students to integrate and apply the knowledge, concepts and skills associated with their entire sequence of undergraduate study. Transition to the role of registered nurse, clinical competence and safety and quality in health care are the primary focus of this subject. 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 simulations 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. Students attend an extended clinical placement in one of a range of clinical areas where they are required to demonstrate their ability to practice at the level of a competent beginning registered nurse in a clinical assessment.
