Synopsis

This course applies the concepts of personal and client vulnerability, safety, fundamentals of nursing care, advocacy and medico-legal aspects from a bio-psycho-social perspective. It promotes a holistic approach to client assessment and management as students extend their prior learning by applying simulated learning situations to their clinical experiences. This will facilitate the development of students' personal and therapeutic communication skills with the aim of producing learners who are able to demonstrate assessment skills, ability to priortise care, critical thinking, reflection and safe transfer of theory from the simulated situations to the real world of practice and to their subsequent courses of study. A clinical practicum experience is incorporated in this course to enable students to apply their learning to the 'real world of nursing practice.'
