Aims/Description: This final unit is undertaken prior to admission to the NMC register upon successful completion. This unit will consolidate learning of all NMC standards and facilitate students to seek out, critically analyse, make judgements upon and implement best evidenced practice which underpin safe and professional nursing interventions as they transition into autonomous and accountable nurse practitioners. It offers a critical examination of the knowledge, skills and values required of the professional nurse. Students will be enabled to understand and practice effective management and leadership skills as they transition into autonomous nurses in the context of effective multi-disciplinary, multi-agency and integrated care practice.
