NUR244 Nursing Practice 2

NUR244 Nursing Practice 2 is the core clinical unit in the second year of the Bachelor of Nursing course. A key focus of the unit is the application, consolidation and integration of first and second year theoretical nursing knowledge in acute health environments and to foster the development of clinical reasoning and sound clinical decision-making within these settings. This unit further extends student understanding of the role and professional practice of the registered nurse in Australia. Students will be required to demonstrate their ability to provide age appropriate, culturally responsive, evidence-based nursing care within the CDU second year nursing student scope of practice.

This unit includes 1 x 5 day Simulation Block (Hurdle Assessment) and a 4 week/160 hour full time placement arranged by the Placement Office. The theory component of the unit requires students to engage with learning materials from week one via Learnline. A result of 100% is required on the medication calculation test prior to the Simulation Block.

Students must meet all pre-clinical requirements and nominate for a Simulation Block and placement to be eligible for this unit. Announcements about nominations will be made via the CDU website and to students' CDU email addresses.

NUR244 is only available in internal mode due to the requirement for clinical teaching and/or placement attendance. Students undertaking the course externally must enrol internally in this unit in order to attend the Simulation Blocks and Placement regardless of location. This does not alter a student's course study mode preference.
