NUR2499 Clinical B: Nursing Care in Context
This course will provide students with opportunities to demonstrate the performance and responsibilities required for safe practice. NUR2499, allows the student nurse to develop their professional interactions, therapeutic relationships, nursing care practices associated with caring for individuals, families and significant others, critical thinking and clinical decision making within a medical or surgical clinical setting. (NUR2100 is a pre-requisite). The aim is to develop skills introduced in prior lab and clinical courses (NUR2800 and NUR2199) and to apply knowledge learnt from past or concurrent theoretical courses. Students will be required to be reflective about their clinical practice experiences for both their professional development and lifelong learning journey. Students will participate in a 160 hour clinical placement and be assessed at the interim and end stages using an assessment tool consistent with the National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse.
