NS2217 - Clinical Leadership and Management

Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 1
Administered by: School of Nursing, Midwifery & Nutrition (pre 2015)

This clinical subject is one of a suite of three second year clinical electives, all of which focus on the consolidation of the repertoire of clinical skills learnt in the four previous clinical subjects, Clinical Nursing Practice 1-4. These skills need to be integrated into the provision of direct patient care, with a particular focus on reflection and observation by the student of those influences operating within the specific context of each of the elective subjects, as described below. This subject aims to provide nursing students with an introduction to the concepts of clinical leadership and management within complex working environments. Building on Clinical Nursing Practice 1-4 students have the opportunity to consolidate their nursing knowledge and skills while exploring the complexities and priorities of nursing care from the standpoint of nurse leaders and managers at varying levels. This unit aims to provide leadership and management theories and principles that assist students to observe and reflect on wider contextual considerations while delivering direct patient care within a team of health care professionals.
