Academic Advisor
Your Academic Advisor is also available for support throughout your programme of study. Please refer to the programme handbook which outlines their specific role.
A Practice placement for this course unit will be undertaken in settings that will provide you with the opportunity to achieve the relevant practice outcomes. You will be required to work with your practice assessor in the practice area to ensure that you plan strategies and activities to meet the required outcomes. It is important that you plan this early in the placement and regularly review your progress indicated in the Practice Placement Assessment Document on PARE . Should you encounter any difficulties you should approach the Practice Education Facilitator IN THE Clinical Practice area in the first instance. The Unit Leader should also be contacted if further advice or support is needed.
Introduction to the Course Unit:
On behalf of the team we hope that you will find this a stimulating unit which will help prepare you for the challenges ahead. It will build upon the content and lessons learnt from both Managing Complex Care and Clinical Judgement and Decision Making and support you as you make the transition from Student Nurse to Newly Qualified Status.
Being able to manage the delivery of care, co-ordinate team activities, delegate care tasks and supervise the work of others is an essential part of every qualified nurse’s role (NMC, 2018). The NHS is undergoing unprecedented change and the challenges to leaders are many (NHS Long term Plan 2019). Over the course of the unit we will be working closely with you all to help you to develop the necessary knowledge, skills and personal attributes you will need in order to be able to lead and manage others within a multi -disciplinary context.
Building on this philosophy, the content, structure, organisation, and delivery of the unit (within theory and practice) will be facilitative and student-centred in approach. You will be encouraged to actively participate in a variety of learning activities within the theory element of this unit. You will also be encouraged to identify your own learning needs following exploration and analysis of relevant issues arising from group work activities. We have planned for independent learning time to give you the space to learn and to facilitate your thinking and learning. Due to this the team have a reasonable expectation that you will illustrate initiative, commitment, interest, enthusiasm and team working in achieving and demonstrating that you are able to effectively meet the outcomes of the Unit.
I and the team hope you really enjoy the Unit

Course Unit Aims and Outcomes
The unit will introduce you to a selection of leadership and management theories, models, styles and approaches that can be applied within contemporary health care settings. We will examine common areas of challenge which require strong leadership and management skills. The new NHS Long Term plan (NHS 2019) promises significant change and as a future staff nurse you will be instrumental in bringing about the changes to enable the plan to be delivered.
In addition to ‘keynote’ lectures (cross field) and online materials, group activities (field-specific), and self-directed study tasks (cross field and field-specific) have been designed to help you to reflect upon the importance of leadership and management skills. These activities will help to facilitate in yourself the individual areas that you need to develop to help you successfully lead health care teams in the future. You will be expected to demonstrate an understanding and application of national policies and procedures that support care organisation and delivery in a variety of health care settings. Additionally, you will be encouraged to develop the knowledge and skills relevant to your role of supporting, supervising, and teaching others. It is expected that you will participate in lectures and group discussions to share your different views and experiences. Your practice placement will provide you with the opportunity to consolidate your knowledge and skills in the overall management of care, coordinating, directing and evaluating the organisation and delivery of care in preparation for your role as a qualified nurse.
