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 6 is the capstone unit of the Bachelor of Nursing and endeavours to consolidate students' prior learning within the program and develop the skills and attributes to transition from student to registered health professional. This unit solidifies the conceptual, theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in order to provide high quality clinical care underpinned by evidence and is reflective of the professional standards for practice for registered nurses (Nurses' and Midwives Board of Australia). The unit draws upon an array of assessments that prepares students for professional registration as well as enhancing their understanding of the clinical role of the registered nurse.

A major component of the unit (equivalent of 3 cp) incorporates the role of narratives in the formation of healthcare professionals. Building upon the Level One unit, Narratives of Illness and Wellbeing, students will have the opportunity to extend their knowledge, understanding and skill of engaging with narrative, aesthetic and interpretation of narrative in the context of the capstone experience of INC 6.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Critically and comprehensively assess complex nursing care needs of individuals, families and communities;

2. Consolidate understanding gained from study across the course to support effective planning, delivery and evaluation of nursing care;

4. Critically evaluate the outcomes of nursing practice with the view to improving and advancing practice;
