Content

The aim of this unit is to combine the different components of advanced practice that constitutes the nurse practitioner role encompassing responsibility, accountability and patient/client advocacy. Students will be prepared to integrate advanced patient assessment skills, diagnostic reasoning, mental health, cultural issues and pathophysiology and pharmacology knowledge in the development of a patient management plan for those with complex care requirements. The student will identify abnormal variations from normal physiological health states and critically analyse treatment plans that encompass evidence-based practice of their clinical domain.
