Department of Health – Safety Screening Requirements - Police Record Check, Working With Children Check and Immunisation Status

In accordance with the Department of Health policy, all students are required to undertake a Police Record Check prior to clinical placements in each calendar year of their course.

In accordance with the Worker Screening Act 2020, all students are required to undertake a Working with Children Check at the commencement of their course. Students who fail to obtain a Police Record Check and a Working with Children Check prior to the commencement of clinical placement will not be able to undertake clinical placement and this will impede progress in the course.

Students are required to declare their immunisation status to satisfy the requirements of health organisations where they will be undertaking their clinical learning experience. A health organisation may refuse to accept a student for placement if the student’s immunisation status is not satisfactory to the health organisation.


This unit is the second unit in the Clinical Studies Cluster: Year 1. In this unit essential nursing knowledge and skills introduced in previous units are further developed in the provision of person-centred care.

Essential concepts for nursing practice related to pre and post procedural care will be explored such as, communication skills, promotion of comfort, management of symptoms, infection prevention and control, and risk management.

During a two (2) week professional experience placement students will have the opportunity to further develop mindsets and apply knowledge and skills learned in this unit and previous units.
