Senior Sophister (4th Year)
Intellectual Disability Nursing students only
This module has two placements. The first placement allows students complete their learning at supervised level in preparation for the independent level of practice required during the second placement the Internship.
In Internship, students engage in supervised practice as employees of the health service. Students begin to engage in independent supervised practice as nursing and multidisciplinary team members. The practice exposure and experiences that students receive engenders in them a level of confidence and competence which will serve to consolidate previous learning and facilitate the development of reasoned decision-making skills and practice in a safe supervised environment.
