3 Unit Description Acute Care Nursing builds on the knowledge and skills already developed in the first and second years of the BN. This unit provides the opportunity for students to care for individuals and families who experience illness or accident, and require interventions in an acute care setting. Students will be working in a variety of acute care settings and contexts within those settings. They will explore the theoretical understandings of the pathophysiology of disease, pharmacology, nursing therapeutics, assessment and management as they relate to the patient s illness and how these influence the approaches to care. Students will be assessed by clinical teachers and lecturers in consultation with registered nurses in practice according to specific competencies taken from the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council (ANMC). Unit Weighting This unit has a weighting of 37.5%. Learning Outcomes On completion of this unit, you should be better able to: 1. Perform all the core skills as listed in the Portfolio of Evidence to a satisfactory level 2. Practise in accordance with the Standards of Professional Practice as documented in the ANMC Competencies. 3. Demonstrate a professional approach to nursing and an understanding of the way in which nurses work in an acute care setting as assessed by the CNC/CNM of the clinical area. 4. Demonstrate a sound clinical knowledge base. 5. Demonstrate knowledge of medication management and the ability to be 100% accurate when calculating medications. 6. Administer medications safely under supervision in the clinical setting. 7. Demonstrate detailed understanding of illness, including pathophysiological, pharmacological and psychosocial dimensions, as evidenced through the completion of the person focussed clinical inquiry. 1

Your progress will be monitored regularly by the clinical facilitators in collaboration with the supervising RNs, Clinical Nurse Consultant (CNC), Clinical Nurse Manager (CNM) and academic staff within the Acute Care team. If you are absent from practice, the unit lecturer/coordinator or clinical facilitator should be advised as soon as possible. If you take sick leave, supporting evidence may be requested. You will meet with the Clinical Facilitator and in some cases the Unit Lecturer in weeks 3 and 8 to discuss your progress in achieving learning outcomes. Your clinical facilitator and/or lecturer will set 6

9 goals for you at the week 3 progress review of your Portfolio. You are expected to accurately document these progress meetings and have them signed by the clinical teacher as a true and accurate account within a week of each meeting. You will rank yourself prior to meeting with the clinical teacher/academic and he/she will then also rank your progress against the ANMC competencies. Your PORTFOLIO of PRACTICE includes: 1. Professional Development Summary This is a report completed by your CNC or CNM (or their deputy) at the end of your 8 week clinical placement. Their assessment of your progress is designed to highlight your developing sense of professional responsibility within a particular setting. It addresses specific criteria listed in your Portfolio of Evidence template. These are fundamental to being a registered nurse and working in an acute care environment. 2. Portfolio Skills Assessment It is expected that you will demonstrate skill and competency development on a 1-5 ranking over the 8 weeks in practice. To pass the unit, you must achieve a 5 ranking for the core skills (listed in your Portfolio of Evidence template) and a competent rating for the ANMC competencies at week 8. A minimum of 2 entries per skill is required. This document is essential to your clinical assessment. It provides evidence that you are achieving a satisfactory skill and competence level required to pass this unit. You should have this document in practice with you at all times. It is your responsibility to complete the skills and competencies within the document. The supervising RN only makes a brief comment and allocates a ranking. There are no specific weeks during which the skills assessments should be undertaken, however you are expected to keep up to date with skills development and take every opportunity to complete them. You are expected to rank yourself and then ask your supervising RN (who might be the clinical teacher or an RN on the ward) to rank you. 3. Episodes of Practice X 2 You must complete two episodes of practice from a range of days. These are reflective pieces of writing that report on how you dealt with specific situations, what you learnt from the experience, and an evaluation of your future learning needs. 7

This paper is a scholarly piece of work, designed to give you the opportunity to draw on your previous studies in the Bachelor of Nursing programme. It will enable you to explore the experience of providing care to an individual within an acute care setting and to demonstrate your clinical knowledge by engaging with the literature and applying a problem solving approach. The clinical inquiry should discuss the person s experience of illness, including psychosocial dimensions, and include the person s perception of their illness/condition. The nursing management, pathophysiology, pharmacological management, medical management and interventions should also be discussed. Verbal consent must be obtained from the person you have selected. To protect the person s anonymity, assign the person a pseudonym and remove identifying details. Your person-focused clinical inquiry must discuss a client you cared for during your placement. It enables you to reflect on the experience of caring and to demonstrate your developing clinical knowledge by engaging with relevant literature. You should write your inquiry in the first person with clear reference to your own engagement with the person in the practice setting. Marking Criteria Introduction of the person and the reason for admission into the acute care facility. Clear analysis of the client s experience of illness including principles of therapeutic communication. A description and rationale of the pathophysiology relevant to the person.. Demonstrated nderstanding of the pathophysiology presented Comprehensive description and rationale for the nursing management provided to the person, including evidence of assessment? Evidence of understanding and rationale for the pharmacological interventions and a clear link to the person and the pathophysiology. An analysis of the medical interventions and rationale Development of a coherent analysis of the case and evidence of a wide review of the literature relevant to the identified problems.
