Unit of study_

Capstone (Research) - NURS5080

Year - 2018

This unit of study will provide an opportunity for students with an interest in research to conduct an in-depth exploration of a topic that you have identified as being of personal professional relevance and/or research interest. To complete this unit you will be expected to work independently selecting, locating and analysing the relevant literature to prepare a scholarly piece of work reviewing current knowledge on the self-identified topic. While you will be expected to pursue your investigation as an independent scholar you will be assisted in your work by regular meetings with the unit coordinator and student colleagues. Your work may be presented in either minor thesis or journal manuscript formats and will be assessed in a manner appropriate for determining suitability for further research higher degree work. Students are advised to indicate their interest in undertaking the research capstone to the NURS5080 unit of study coordinator as they complete the unit of study NURS5069 Research in Nursing and Health Care so that specific academic advice can be provided. NURS5080 Capstone (Research) is also an important component of the Sydney Nursing School pathway to research higher degree enrolment and students interested in pursuing this pathway should also seek Academic advice from the Postgraduate Coordinator (Research) before enrolling in the second semester of their course.
