Course description

Students will undertake 120 hours of supervised clinical experience in an integrated placement model. During the second year, an integrated placement will be used for students to engage with clinical practice experience. There is an equal emphasis on practice elements and theoretical understanding. Students are exposed to increasingly complex professional practice concepts under direct registered nurse supervision in the clinical practice setting.

The educational focus of Semester 2 is care of individuals with complex and/or chronic conditions across the lifespan and the social context of care. Students build on foundation skills to implement and evaluate a range of nursing care responsibilities. There are 4 courses that run concurrently in the Bachelor of Nursing program. The courses provide complementary content to assist the learner to integrate theoretical and practice knowledge for application in the clinical setting.
