Developing Nursing Practice - NURS5082

Year - 2018

This unit of study complements Introduction to Nursing Practice and further develops the understanding of clinical judgement in practice and the role of nursing in assisting those experiencing hospitalisation. Such assistance includes but is not limited to: maintenance of appropriate fluid status, infection control, oral medications, effective levels of oxygenation and pain relief. This knowledge will be extended to incorporate the experience of caring for patients when the body fails to function as expected, and particularly where surgery is required. This unit of study will further develop skills in physical assessment, communication, and documentation and introduce students to medication administration.
