Thank you for taking the time to complete the 2021 UniSA Placement Requests: Aged Care Placements survey.
This survey tool enables you to inform the UniSA Clinical Placement Unit of your organisation's/facility's capacity to provide aged care placements to our 2nd year Bachelor of Nursing students, undertaking the NURS2034 ELA: Older Adults Practicum 2 placement course.
The NURS2034: Older Adults Practicum 2 placement course consists of the following two placement blocks:
Block 1: 17/05/2021- 13/06/2021
Block 2: 5/07/2021 - 1/08/2021
The aim of this placement course is to enable students to demonstrate appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes in the provision of nursing care to the older adult population.
This course is a four (4) week (160 hour) placement in an aged care setting that provides health care for the older adult population.
This is the first clinical placement in the nursing program. Students have previously undertaken 11 weeks of practice in an on-campus simulated clinical environment in year 1 of the program and eight (8) weeks in year 2 leading up to this placement.
Students may be rostered over 24 hours and 7 days a week at venue discretion. Students are supernumerary and must be provided with time to meet with the Clinical Facilitator as well as time to orientate to the clinical setting and patient/client population.
