Essential Clinical Skills clearly and succinctly explains each key clinical skill and provides a structured format for students to undertake many of the skills taught in HLT54115. Each skill is mapped to the key units of competency as well as the Indicators in the Standards for Practice: Enrolled Nurses (2016), where relevant. Using this text, students and instructors are able to translate their skills and knowledge into demonstrable competencies that fulfil the required standards. The text has been designed to assist the learning and practice of clinical skills introduced in on campus purpose-built Nursing Skills Laboratories. Students are taught how to implement basic nursing care, assess clients' health and analyse health-related information.
