Students will be able to observe and critically appraise the nurse's role in delivering primary, secondary or tertiary care within a variety of settings. This course allows for a scaffolding of experiential skills, application of knowledge and an integration of pre and co-requisite course theory and practice, such as NUR2400: Models of Nursing Care, and NUR3030: Indigenous Health and Cross Cultural Care, to augment clinical knowledge and experience in this course. Students are required to complete 160 hours of clinical practice in placements including rural and remote hospitals or health care centres, community health settings, domiciliary health, Indigenous communities and health centres, correctional centres, schools, drug rehabilitation centres and palliative and hospice care units, medical centres, disability services centres, renal units and day oncology units. The course provides facilitated or preceptored clinical placement opportunities for students to demonstrate competency as assessed in the Clinical Performance Evaluation Tool which partially fulfils requirements of the National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse.
