This course provides the theoretical and practical application of nursing needed for working with older adults. This course challenges students to better understand the unique needs of, and the nursing care required by, the older person. In particular, a focus on co-morbidity and the complexities of caring for older adults with multiple physical and mental health challenges will be examined in a variety of health care settings across a range of common health conditions associated with ageing. Both an ageing Singaporean population and increased client acuity requires a sound knowledge base in this core nursing area. There are no prerequisites for this course as students are currently in the workforce. The course is available to Bachelor of Nursing Singapore students only, restricted to 1251 program students ONLY.
Education and Nursing Courses will be charged at the Student Contribution band 1 rate. Transitional arrangements apply.
