About this Unit
Australia has strict border measures in place to protect the health of the Australian community. Travel restrictions between Australian states and territories and in some remote areas of Australia are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Further to this, there is a ban on overseas travel from Australia. You can’t leave Australia unless you get an exemption from the Department of Home Affairs (source - https://covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au/leaving-australia). Due to this ban on international travel, this unit will not be offered 2021 Summer A. The focus of this unit is to provide nursing students with the problem-solving skills required in assessing and caring for people who are living in poverty in remote or rural areas in Australia and/or internationally. This unit is designed to enable students to develop cultural awareness and understanding of health care delivery and contemporary issues confronting health care for people who are living in remote or rural areas in Australia and/or internationally. Students will be eligible for up to 80 hours of approved clinical hours following successful completion of the clinical assessment tool by an accredited registered nurse.
