This course has a broad scope for relevance and utility, yet has a balance of generic and specific content. You will explore theoretical and clinical practice components of the roles of nurse practitioners and study advanced practice across a range of clinical applications. Your studies will focus particularly on professional accountability, competency to practise, evidence-based practice, critical thinking, diagnostic reasoning, clinical decision making and the quality use of medicines.
In your second semester you will complete a placement under the supervision of a nurse practitioner in a hospital or agency. Your final semester will be devoted to two individual health projects under the guidance of our experienced staff.
