Integrated Pharmacology in an Undergraduate Nursing Curriculum: The Nursing Students’ Perceptions of Their Readiness for Clinical Placement
MetadataShow full item record
Evaluation of integrated pharmacology in nursing curricula from a student perspective is limited. Existing pharmacology curriculum was verified and student survey were undertaken. Pharmacology was scaffolded throughout curriculum and learning on clinical placement progressed as students advanced in the program. Clinical placement and self-tuition learning opportunities were highly valued. Medication side effects and contraindications remained challenging. A conceptual framework for pharmacology within UG nursing curricula was developed incorporating knowledge acquisition, application and decision making.
