Why study Advanced Practice Nursing?
The Graduate Diploma in Nursing (Advanced Practice Nursing) will assist the student to apply an advanced level of knowledge and skills in clinical health assessment; effectively identify the needs of the individual/family and formulate comprehensive health assessments and plans of care within their area of specialty practice that are constructed using theoretical principles and evidence based research findings.
Additionally, the student will analyse contemporary nursing practice from a variety of perspectives, developing an understanding of the professional issues and the impact of current political, economic and socio-cultural influences on the profession and nursing practice. Clinical teaching and learning skills are integral components of professional nursing practice. The students will develop skills and knowledge that will prepare them for educational leadership roles within their own specified area of practice; enable the nurse to educate, support and develop their colleagues; promote health education to their clients and support beginning practitioners entering the profession.
Opportunity also exists for students to undertake two elective subjects in areas that will enhance their knowledge and skills in specialty practice or fulfil a professional interest.
