Managing a range of complex tasks simultaneously and independently is a shift of responsibility from student nurse to registered nurse and therefore sound decision making is one of the major functions of the nurses role and crucial to a patient's outcome. In order to prepare our students to confidently manage and decide on patient care we must educate our them from the very beginning to engage in critical thinking when something is out of the ordinary, manage time and prioritise patients' needs when faced with multiple tasks. As well as this we educate our students to recognise the need for and initiate interventions for patients whose condition changes unexpectedly. Through exploring theoretical case management of a variety of patient/client situations this course will assist the students transform knowledge and skills both into their clinical laboratory settings, written assessments in to their clinical placements.
