This unit explores nursing from multiple interlinked perspectives and builds on fundamental concepts explored in NURS1004. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of legal, ethical and professional frameworks and the critical importance of these in the provision of safe, high quality nursing care. The emerging complexity of healthcare, including the role of technologies and health informatics in healthcare will be addressed, with an emphasis on how these relate to safety and quality in healthcare care delivery. A focus on leadership and followership will provide students with a sound basis on which to develop their own clinical leadership potential in preparation for their nursing career. Throughout the unit, students will have the opportunity to reflect on their own practice and that of others as they prepare for their future roles as registered nurses.
