This subject is premised on the belief that effective leadership, mentoring and clinical teaching can transform practice and requires students to explore nursing leadership in contemporary practice. It examines theories relevant to adult learning, leadership, mentorship and clinical supervision. Students develop an understanding that nursing leadership at all levels is critical to the sustainability and development of the profession, beginning with themselves as they transition to new graduates. Using the Patient Safety Competency Framework (PSCF), the concepts of leadership and quality and safety of patient care are explored. The subject motivates students to engage with their profession in a responsible and honourable way, develop a sense of constructive agency and ultimately positively influence the work lives of others.
