This subject contains a 20 days Compulsory Workplace Learning component.
The professional experience will be undertaken under the supervision of a prescribing nurse practitioner or medical practitioner 160 hours (20 days). This experience must allow the nurse to see patients under supervision, formulate differential diagnoses, treatment plans and present patient cases (in real time) to professional experience supervisors to obtain advice, guidance and confirmation. This experience is outside normal nursing working hours unless the nurse is in a NP transition role.
The student will discuss with the academic mentor the logistics of this professional experience. A professional experience supervisor will liaise with the academic mentor to explain professional experience supervision requirements, review the Professional Experience Supervisor Handbook and the objectives of the professional experience.
