Course description

Our approach to teaching is innovative. Instead of sitting in a lecture theatre, you’ll work on solutions to specific problems. This helps you develop the skills and the confidence you need. You’ll study alongside other health care professionals in a health care setting.

You’ll learn how to critically evaluate current research, policies and practice. By linking theory to practice, you’ll develop a range of clinical skills and knowledge appropriate for professional registration as an adult nurse.

You’ll spend half your time gaining practical experience in a wide variety of community and clinical settings.

This course uses the following framework to help you develop valuable attributes in your practice:

This includes the ability to work effectively as a member of the interdisciplinary team.
  • Saliency: assessment of the needs of patients/clients and their significant others in a way that facilitates their participation in the care process and ensures that plans of care reflect their priorities and best interests.
  • Knowing the Patient: respect for patients/clients and their significant others, valuing their life histories, their perspectives as experts in their own health career, and involvement as partners in the care process.
  • Moral Agency: nursing care should be provided within a framework of sound ethical and legal principles, anti-discriminatory practice and the empowerment of patients/clients and their significant others.
  • Skilled Know How: holistic, proficient and adept nursing care that encompasses excellence in clinical and interpersonal skills.
