Nurses deliver care within an environment that is heavily regulated by the law and as such, an understanding of law as it relates to health care is important in the provision of safe and competent care to both individuals and groups. This is a foundational subject in which students will begin to develop an understanding of the legal requirements of the profession through the introduction of specific legislation that governs nursing practice. Engaging in the content of this subject will broaden students' knowledge base to practise in accordance with legislative requirements, professional codes and the National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse.
