The aim of this unit is to develop the student’s knowledge and understanding of the role and function of the professional nurse practitioner to undertake collaborative practice across complex interdisciplinary alliances. This role development is according to the national competency standards and other professional practice guidelines including prescribing of medications. Contemporary leadership theory, consultancy, advanced teamwork and ethical, legal and socio-political issues relevant to the nurse practitioner’s role will be examined. Students will commence a professional portfolio that demonstrates critical analysis, synthesis and evaluation to monitor this changing role.
Assignment 1 (2000 words) 40%, assignment 2 (3000 words) 60%
Each student is required to have access to a clinical supervisor to support extension of their field of practice for their clinical domain. A professional portfolio is to be maintained including placement and clinical supervisor agreements to be submitted to the course coordinator. In addition, the student is required to engage in oral presentations and assessment feedback is to be kept in their copy of the professional portfolio. These requirements are designed to assist each student in their application to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) for endorsement as a ‘Nurse Practitioner’.
