Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Integrating Nursing Concepts 4 is the 2nd integration unit of Phase Two of the course and endeavours to foster the development of skills, knowledge and attributes required for the provision of safe and quality nursing care of those with mental and acute adult health issues. This unit builds on the framework of the conceptual, theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to provide high quality clinical care underpinned by evidence that is reflective of the professional standards for practice for registered nurses (Nurses' and Midwives Board of Australia). The unit incorporates assessment that prepares students for professional registration as well as enhancing student understanding of the registered nurse as a professional, legal accountability, reflection in practice and teamwork. Particular emphasis is placed on health across the lifespan and will focus on mental health as well as acute adult health issues.
