The Dual Registration programme has been designed to meet local demand for nurses to be registered in two fields of practice. This is an exciting opportunity for future nurses to learn to provide person-centred care in both Adult and Mental Health fields of nursing.
Students in all fields will study the core themes of nursing, sciences, health, and practice learning. They will explore values-based professional, compassionate and family-centred care, health and wellbeing across the lifespan, and learn the essential skills to deliver safe nursing practice in a variety of settings in today’s multi-cultural environment.
The core themes advance to a more complex level. Students in all fields will develop their ability to link and apply theory to practice, providing care to people who may be at any stage of life and who may have a range of mental, physical, cognitive or behavioural health challenges.
Year 3 allows students to focus more on integrating the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for working autonomously in the field of adult nursing. The themes from Years 1 and 2 will be explored at a more complex level. Management, leadership and research skills in the healthcare environment is a key focus.
Students focus more on integrating the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for working autonomously in Mental Health Nursing. Themes from Years 1 and 2 will be explored at a more complex level and will be assessed at level 10. Again, healthcare management, leadership and research skills are a key focus.
