This nursing course focuses on nursing care and related skills based on evidence-informed medical-surgical nursing practice. The learner builds upon previous nursing knowledge and related theory in adapting the nursing approach to the care of the medical-surgical client using the nursing metaparadigm and the nursing process. The learner continues to develop leadership skills through the experience of mentorship. A laboratory component is included in which learners apply theory and practise nursing skills related to medical-surgical nursing, including parenteral medication administration.
