In this unit students will reflect on their practice and recognise their responsibility for lifelong learning as future Registered Nurses. Student will be supported to produce a substantive portfolio that demonstrates their integrated professional capabilities and insights into practice. In this capstone unit, students will consolidate knowledge and integrate theory and reflect on practice from previous units with 160 hours of embedded PEP. The portfolio will draw on students’ nursing practice across the lifespan taking into account Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, other cultures and people of diversity across a range of primary, secondary and tertiary settings. The unit will conclude with a mini symposium to share the highlights of their portfolio.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
The assessment tasks link the learning outcomes and graduate capabilities. In the first assessment of this 24 credit point unit, students will submit an early proposal for a portfolio. In the second assessment task, students will demonstrate development of knowledge with submission of a progress report. In the third assessment task, students will demonstrate reflective writing and narrative skills with submission of the summative portfolio. The fourth assessment will demonstrate theoretical knowledge and presentation skills with a themed symposium presentation in the final week. The last assessment will demonstrate clinical knowledge and skills with the completion of 160 hours of PEP and satisfactory pass on the summative Australian Nursing Standard Assessment Tool (ANSAT).
Required readings will be made available on VU Collaborate.
