Advanced Health Assessment CNA533



This unit is only available to registered nurses. This unit uses group work and late enrolment may affect your ability to participate actively.


This unit provides students with the potential to further develop their health assessment skills by engaging in a number of learning activities. Students will recognise the essential concepts of health assessment that can be applied in any situation and reflect on their own professional work context and the special skills they may require in this context. Students will be presented with diverse hypothetical situations (case studies) to gain insight into the adaptability of key assessment skills using a range of approaches to health assessment. 8Hp1�PU_}
