Objective(s): Learning objective: A, B, C, D and E
Graduate Attribute: 2.0, 4.0 and 5.0
Weight: 40%
Length: 1500 word limit +/- 10%, excluding references
Task: This assessment item has 3 parts:
Students will review the specific case scenario materials provided for this assignment. Using this
information students will identify and prioritise the patient’s complex health issues. Students will
provide rationales for their prioritisation decisions which will be supported by current literature and
related nursing and healthcare standards and health department policies.

  1. Identify a total of three patient health issues from ONE of the case scenarios that nurses
    can address within their scope of practice. You may include ‘risk for’ or ‘potential for’ health
    issues.
  2. Rank the three patient health issues that were selected in part 1 in order of priority.
    Provide a rationale for the order of the rankings. The rationale must be supported with
    current literature.
  3. Outline the nurse’s role in addressing the top three priority patient health issues in
    relation to patient assessment, coordination of care and delivery of care. Relate the
    discussion to nursing and healthcare standards and health department policies.
    e.g. RN Standards for Practice, NSW health policy, National Safety and Quality Health Service
    (NSQHS) standards etc.
    Students need to demonstrate their ability to identify and prioritise patient health issues that nurses
    can address within their scope of practice and rationalise the order of priority. This will enable
    students to articulate decisions they will need to make in clinical practice. In addition, students will
    be able to demonstrate their ability to write clearly and succinctly to reflect their understanding.
    Referencing
    The Faculty of Health uses the American Psychological Association (APA) 7th referencing style for in
    text referencing and production of a reference list.
    Accurate referencing using is expected – poor referencing will result in loss of marks. Marks may be
    deducted if the assessment is not within the word limit.
