You will study the core themes of nursing, sciences, health, and practice learning. You 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.
The final year allows students to focus on integrating the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for working autonomously in their primary chosen field. The themes from years 1 and 2 will be explored at a more complex level. You will also cover management, leadership and research skills in the healthcare environment.
