This course will provide students with opportunities to demonstrate the performance and responsibilities required for safe practice. NUR2499 allows the student to develop their professional interactions, therapeutic relationships and nursing care practices associated with caring for individuals, families and significant others. Students develop critical thinking and clinical decision making within a medical or surgical clinical setting (NUR2100 is a pre-requisite). The aim is to develop skills introduced in prior lab and clinical courses (NUR2800 and NUR2199) and to apply knowledge learnt from past or concurrent theoretical courses. Students will be required to be reflective about their clinical practice experiences for both their professional development and lifelong learning journey. Students will participate in a 160 hour clinical placement which includes 120 hours off campus in clinical settings and 40 hours in campus-based activities of professional development and simulation. Students will be assessed at the interim and end stages of the off campus practicum using an assessment tool consistent with the National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse. They will be assessed in their campus-based week with an assessment tool representative of the activities including a simulation-based assessment in the clinical laboratory.
