Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Special assessment requirements
Information on extensions and special considerations for assessments can be found in the Assessment Policy and Assessment Procedures.
Moderation will be undertaken for assessment items to ensure that marking is fair and consistent. Moderation processes are in line with the Faculty of Health guidelines and the University Assessment Procedures
Late submissions will only be accepted for a limited period. If more than one late submission is made within that period, only the first late submission will be accepted for marking and may be subject to penalties as detailed in the Assessment Procedures.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
To get the most out of your studies, it is strongly recommended that you plan your time commitments, actively engage in class discussions (online or face-to-face) and work with your peers as part of your study. The amount of time you will need to spend on study in this unit will depend on several factors including your prior knowledge, learning skill level, and learning style.
Please note that as per UC guidelines, for each 3 Credit Point unit of study students should expect to spend approximately 150 hours per teaching period on both directed and self-directed activities to engage meaningfully in the unit content and to develop assessments for learning.
All Bachelor of Nursing students are expected to undertake a minimum of five (5) hours per week per unit of directed/self-directed learning (SDL), related to content engagement, assessment preparation, clinical learning, or revision, in addition to their timetabled unit contact (i.e., lectures, workshops, tutorials).
In nursing where PEP is a requirement for professional registration, hours expected for engagement and to meet the unit requirements are necessarily adjusted and may fluctuate during the teaching period.
Inclusion and Engagement
Any student with a reasonable adjustment plan (RAP) is asked to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any reasonable adjustments that may be required for PEP.
Students within 364JA Bachelor of Nursing must ensure that they meet the Inherent Requirements relevant to the profession of nursing – it is each students responsibility to read and understand these UC Nursing Inherent Requirements statements. For support in meeting the inherent requirements, please make a time with InclusionUC and your Course Convenor.

It is expected that all students will be available for the duration of the teaching period, inclusive of any scheduled PEP in INC units. All students are encouraged to review the Important Dates for Applications and Enrolments for information on deadlines, including census date.
During the week before the teaching period commences (O week) students are encouraged to speak with the relevant unit convenor/s to understand specific unit requirements in their chosen unit of study, including requirements specified in this unit outline.
Where a student self-identifies that they will not be available for the duration of the teaching period, and/or scheduled PEP, it is strongly encouraged that they consider withdrawing from the unit prior to census date to avoid any financial and/or academic penalty. Where extenuating circumstances arise after census date the student will be encouraged to speak with Student Centre regarding withdrawal from the unit and applying for remission of fees and/or academic penalty.
It is expected that students who withdraw from a unit of study will contact the course convenor to discuss their overall course progression and seek an updated, approved, study plan from firstname.lastname@example.org to support their continued progression in the course.
Course Progression and Maximum Duration
Students are reminded that any variation to their study plan, including withdrawal or awarding of a fail grade, will increase overall course duration. Students must course complete within the maximum course duration of six (6) years. As the Bachelor of Nursing course is accredited with the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC), in the event that a student is identified as not being able to course complete in the required maximum course duration, the Discipline will recommend to Faculty Board that your program be discontinued.
Required IT skills
Please note the materials required for this unit section. You will require computer skills to access the internet upload to the Canvas university site submissions in various formats. This unit may involve online meetings in real time using a virtual room. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, please visit the UCLearn Student Help link.
Students undertaking units where there are assessment items conducted online are strongly encouraged to test their setup during the semester. Where support for troubleshooting technical issues is identified by students, students are encouraged to seek support from Service Desk.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Two specific assessement support sessions will be scheduled to allow an additional opportunity for students to seek guidance and clarification on each of the assignments; these sessions are additional to the scheduled tutorials.
