This unit of study explores nursing from multiple interlinked perspectives and builds on fundamental concepts explored in NURS1004. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of legal, ethical, moral and professional frameworks and the critical importance of these for the provision of safe, high quality nursing care. The emerging role of complex technologies and informatics in healthcare will be addressed with an emphasis on how these relate to professional practice. A focus on leadership will also provide students with a sound basis on which to develop their own leadership potential throughout their nursing career. Throughout the unit students will have the opportunity to reflect on their own practice and that of others as they prepare for their future role as a registered nurse.
