This unit is the second of two units within the Professional Studies Cluster which incrementally develop students’ understanding of the issues influencing contemporary nursing practice and their role as a member of a health care team. Students will have the opportunity to reflect upon their own development through the course and identify their strengths and interests as well as areas for development. A key focus of the learning in the unit will be on the registered nurse’s leadership role in clinical risk management, clinical governance, quality improvement and change management. This unit is designed to assist students in their transition from student to registered nurse.
