BSc (Hons) General Nursing aims to equip healthcare nurse practitioners with the skills and knowledge needed for the development of autonomous graduate practitioners who can demonstrate the required skills, knowledge and attitudes, values and technical abilities that underpin safe, effective and competent care.
Students will work with other professionals in healthcare, exchange ideas, debate issues and share best practices.
Upon successful completion of this course, it is expected that graduates will be able to:
| Articulate and demonstrate safe, effective practice recognising the parity of mental health and physical health and will have achieved the standards for competence for entry to the Nursing Council of Mauritius register as a General Nurse.
| Understand the complexity of influences that impact on a person’s health and well-being and be able to identify and work with people to select evidence based solutions to care, reflecting on the impact on health and well being and adapting future practice accordingly.
| Critically analyse the impact of health policy, on individuals, locally, internationally and globally. | Use skills of leadership, management, collaborative decision making, critical reflection and critically appraise evidence to plan, deliver and evaluate packages of care.
| Use a variety of communication and coaching skills to engage, work collaboratively with and disengage therapeutically from service users and carers and demonstrate critical self-awareness, autonomy and enterprise while working both independently and within teams, contributing to the development of other nurses and healthcare professionals.
| Work as autonomous, accountable practitioners, nursing within an ethical, professional and legal framework, recognizing and responding to the diverse needs of individuals and populations.
