NUR330 Advanced Medical Surgical Nursing

This unit is an elective unit offered in the third year of the Bachelor of Nursing course. Students come to this unit with a sound knowledge of primary health care across the life span and the general principles and concepts in the nursing care of people from culturally diverse groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Students also have developed understanding of the role and scope of practice of the registered nurse in contemporary Australian health care.

NUR330 consolidates, integrates and extends nursing knowledge and understanding gained in other units of the course, and using a primary health care framework, introduces students to concepts and principles in the care of people requiring emergency, renal or peri-operative care in Australia. There is particular focus on health and patient assessment, the role and the scope of the registered nurse in emergency, renal and perioperative settings and the impact of social determinants of health on the health beliefs, practices and decision making in the Australian context.

Note: students enrolled in BNRSG must successfully complete NUR251 before attempting this unit.
