Health assessment is a foundational skill for nurses in all contexts of care and forms part of the Supportive Studies Cluster. In this unit students have the opportunity to develop the knowledge, techniques and skills required by the nurse to perform comprehensive and focused health assessment of individuals. Assessment informs identification of patient problems in relation to risk, symptoms and patient function. Appropriate use of assessment data will assist students to further develop clinical decision making skills foundational to the provision of quality patient care.
