The students will integrate patient scenarios in the clinical nursing labs and simulations to demonstrate professionalism and their ability to link theory to evidence-based practice for recognising, and responding to, a clinically deteriorating patient. Through the development of professional attributes, values, ongoing self-assessment, self-determination, and preparedness for self-directed and life-long learning, the student will be work ready for their clinical practice.
