STRP-CAHNC v.1 Child and Adolescent Health Nursing Stream (GCert ClinNurs)
This major/stream is part of a larger course. Information is specific to the major/stream, please refer to the course for more information.
Child and Adolescent Health Nursing Stream offers effective and specific education for generalist, child and adolescent community health nurses to prepare practitioners capable of fulfilling these diverse practice roles. Community health nursing is modelled on a primary health care framework with the aim of promoting health, preventing disease, implementing early intervention strategies, managing individual cases and working in collaborative partnerships with clients. Embodied in the primary health care approach are the primary, secondary and tertiary levels of prevention that are provided by community health nurses. Given the autonomous work, nurses practising in the community must have professional skills and specialist preparation in these areas of community health nursing. The practice domain includes individuals, families, groups and whole communities. Australia's diverse multicultural society necessitate that community health nurses are able to undertake relevant research and provide relevant evidence based socio-cultural health support to the profession and members of the community throughout their lifespan.
Students need to stay in original stream as this is linked to the employment sector and scholarship.
