This is the final semester transitional practice course. Students are provided with opportunities to demonstrate the performance and responsibilities required for safe practice. NUR3499 allows students to develop their professional interactions, therapeutic relationships and nursing care practices associated with caring for individuals, families and significant others. Students develop critical thinking, clinical decision making and proficiency using the nursing process within an appropriate acute and or chronic care clinical setting. The aim is to develop skills introduced in prior simulated laboratories and clinical courses 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.
