This subject builds on the knowledge and skills gained in the first and second-year subjects to extend students’ critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills in caring for patients with higher acuity and more complex health breakdown. The importance of comprehensive assessment is particularly emphasised together with nurse-initiated interventions that are based on both physiological and pathophysiological processes, the best literature and clinical judgement. Students expand their ability to identify and respond to clinically deteriorating patients across the lifespan and to initiate and escalate care appropriately. Students practice within the framework of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Registered Nurse Standards for Practice and the Patient Safety Competency Framework (PSCF).
