Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

critically analyse the construction and diverse meanings of health, wellness, illness and disease for the health consumers narrative in local and global settings

demonstrate an advanced and integrated understanding of cognitive and developmental milestones which affect children from the neonatal period to adolescence, and the associated clinical manifestations

demonstrate cultural responsivity and respect for the identity and dignity of all persons, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

apply concepts of adaptation and change throughout the lifespan to provide person-centred nursing care
