This second nursing foundations course builds on the theory and skills learned in Term 1, with a focus on the client and the nurse-client relationship. Topics include the metaparadigm of nursing, safety, professionalism, and leadership, with a focus on the application of these concepts to the client. Emphasis will be placed on using the nursing process, demonstrating critical thinking, applying the concept of self-care, and setting priorities. Students develop nursing care plans tailored to client needs, demonstrate effective documentation, mathematical calculations, communication, and client-teaching skills. In the lab setting, students apply theory, practise skills, and competently perform the selected nursing skills required for effective clinical practice.
