NUR2800 Simulated Practice
Pre-requisite: NUR1099 and NUR1140 and NUR1200 and NUR2000
Must be enrolled in Bachelor of Nursing
This course applies the concepts of professional nursing care to client assessment and management in a simulated situation. Students utilise simulated learning situations, and associated and assigned preparation for laboratory sessions to propose and demonstrate appropriate client care across the lifespan. Students assess priorities according to the data at hand to demonstrate skills in clinical decision making and evaluate both their own and their peers' performance in simulated situations. A holistic approach insures development of students' personal and therapeutic communication skills with the aim of producing learners who are able to demonstrate assessment skills, prioritise care, discern appropriate actions and evaluate both risk and quality of care. Case studies are utilised to give the academic, psychomotor, social and therapeutic skills a context in terms of client variances and evidence for appropriate nursing practice.
