Professional Competence in Nursing

Module description:

Based on a patient case history as presented and by dealing with concrete issues, students are capable of compiling the associated elements of nursing care and nursing science and can also suggest possible nursing care solutions. They can research domestic and international scientific findings in particular those concerning evidence-based reflection as well as evaluation and argumentation in health care and nursing. They can evaluate nursing results and justify their evaluations with reference to current scientific findings. The students are capable of recognizing complex nursing issues based on examples of concrete patients and clients. They can holistically observe the state of health of people of all age groups and recognize inconsistencies that require clarification or intervention. They carry out patient-centered nursing diagnoses that integrate the patient/client¿s surrounding environment. Within the framework of nursing diagnostics, they can compile the level of development, health risk factors and indications, problems, needs and developmental potential of people of all age groups as well as families under consideration of cultural and ideological contexts. They subsequently plan the necessary nursing interventions based on the individual and situational context. Such measures are chosen based on nursing knowledge in its entirety as well under consideration of the preferences and resources of the persons involved within the context of physical, psychological, religious, spiritual, sociocultural, gender specific and ethnical aspects and with regard to economic and ecological factors. The students are familiar with and understand the steps involved in the nursing process. They are capable of developing simple nursing care plans with relevant goals and individual interventions. In a process-oriented manner they can record the care given and the observations made in their nursing documentation. The students are capable of performing nursing processes and can justify their nursing decisions based on the nursing knowledge available.
