Content

This unit is the second of two units within the Professional Studies in Nursing cluster which incrementally develop students’ understanding of the issues influencing contemporary nursing practice. In this unit, students are assisted in their transition from student to registered nurse. Opportunities are provided for students to examine and reflect critically on issues influencing contemporary nursing practice and their readiness to make the transition from student to Division 1 registered nurse. A major focus will be on professional preparation and continued development of students’ knowledge, skills, and attributes within a framework of quality, safety, and risk management.
