As the impact of globalisation, rapid urbanisation and climate change challenge social cohesion and health systems, there is a demand for globally competent nurses who understand that health and illness have no borders. Integration of primary health care principles is fundamental to collaborative, holistic professional nursing practice. Nurses advocate for equity, social justice, community participation, cultural safety and inter-sectoral collaboration. In this course students need to apply these concepts to implement evidence-based, person-centred, sustainable models of care reflecting the values and behaviours of global citizenship.

In this course students will identify and apply primary health care principles and strategies to meet global health challenges in their nursing practice. This course will build upon the knowledge and skills acquired in NUR1120, NUR1202, NUR2101 and NUR2102. The scope of this course emphasises the need for an interconnected, global approach to collaborative nursing practice as students analyse the nurse's role in preventing illness and promoting universal health.
