    Default HLSC110 practical/clinical what does it involve?

    Hi all,


    Just wanted some help from other ACU midwifery students. I need to select my timetable next Tuesday but am stuck. What is the Prac/clinical and what does it involve. I'm trying to organise the timetable so I'm not at uni everyday but noticed the Prac/clincal (not prac/nursing) has no room number. Is this off campus training.


    So far I have:


    1 tutorial
    1 lecture
    1 prac nursing
    1 prac clinical


    If its off campus training I'll need to make sure I have nothing else on the day that requires me to be at the uni. If it's on campus I could probably cram them all in over 1 1/2 days.


    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hi Chrissy
    I enquired today about this one. I'm not sure where you are studying, but at ACU Brisbane the practicum for this is at an aged care facility (and not for the full semester). I hope this helps

    Im hoping to study bach Mid this year (find out tomorrow night) and we have a 5 day a week workload (full time Bachelor of Midwifery). Two of these days are off campus- within a hospital. So prac and clinicals are antenatal/postnatal clinics/visits and watching births............not sure if it is the same for wherever it is your studying though.
    best thing to do would be to call the uni.

    Hi OneLove
    The practicum applies to Midwifery students as well. I know I was alittle taken back, when Julie Barr told me we would be on site at an aged care facility. Although it does makes sense, as this is a nursing unit too, and once qualified we are equivalent to a Division 2 Nurse.
    Hope this makes sense. Do you know what hospitals we are associated with for our pracs?
    Cheers

    Really!?!!! Gosh I knew nothing about prac at an aged care facility

    What exactly will it involve?

    What sort of work can you get with a Division 2 Nursing Qual??

    Also, Danann11 - i sent you a PM

    When I asked about hospitals they said we would be have experience at different hospitals over the course of the degree and it would just depend on where they could find for us each time... starting to wish I'd stuck with Griffith is it to late to change back lol

    Mind you if we are doing part-time then we don't technically do this Subject until next year. I wonder if I just do part-time at ACU and then change over to UQ or Griffith and get credit for the subjects done....

    Oh dear - am I over thinking this!?!

    Hey, I'll be studying BMid at ACU Melbourne this year.
    I'm also an enrolled nurse (div 2) and work in aged care. At work we get groups of students from ACU who study nursing/mid/paramedics come in for a few hours for "observation" (not doing anything practical). Not sure if this is what you guys are talking about?

    Though, we also had a group of mid students do their first placements at my work because apparently there is a major lack of mid placements :S Amazingly, they were the best students we ever had on my ward!

    Hi Ladies,

    I just got off the phone with Julie at ACU.

    She has explained HLSC110 for me

    Basically you choose 1 lecture, 1 tutorial and 1 Practical - Nursing.
    You also chose 1 practium/clinical placement time slot which is actually just a once-off 4 hour visit to the Aged Care facility close by to the Uni.

    Hope that helps

    And yep, by the end of the degree, we will also be qualified as a Division 2 enrolled nurse.
