RN: Principles of emergency care
This subject aims to prepare registered nurses to care for patients requiring emergency intervention. It is designed for nurses working in emergency departments as well as those working in smaller regional, rural and remote hospitals where nurses are expected to work in all areas of the hospital. Timely and accurate assessment and management in emergency situations reduces morbidity and mortality; therefore, it is imperative nurses are able to manage patients who have life-or limb-threatening conditions and provide time-critical interventions. This subject will provide the knowledge underpinning the skills needed for attending to first-line assessment and management of patients.
