Integrating Nursing Concepts 1 (INC1) provides students with the opportunity to integrate learning from foundation units: Foundations of Anatomy and Physiology; Foundations of Professional Planning and Therapeutic Use of Self 1. INC1 engages the concepts from those units and applies them to contemporary nursing practice through immersive simulation, interactive workshops and an observational workplace experience (40 hours). The goal of the unit is to develop conceptual understanding of critical principles as a foundation for future practice.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Articulate the role assessment has in determining nursing care for individuals, families and communities;
2. Discuss the role of effective planning, delivery and evaluation of nursing care;
3. Engage at a foundational level with contemporary evidence to inform nursing practice;
4. Practice in ways that ensure care is respectful and supportive of people with diverse backgrounds;
5. Articulate the need and identify strategies for nurses to use effective communication within the healthcare team; and
6. Explain how reflection supports safe and quality nursing practice.
