  • What are the obligations of the nursing student in practice as a proactive and engaged learner?

Module Aims:

The aim of this module is to introduce students to the fundamental principles of basic nursing skills, normal anatomy and physiology of key body systems to enable them to practise safe and effective care underpinned by the theory and science of contemporary clinical nursing practice. As a result of participation in this module, the student will have begun to define and develop the skills involved in addressing the following:

  • What literacy, technological knowledge and skills are required to underpin the fundamentals of nursing science and practice?

You will also be able to answer the following questions:
