1 Bachelor of Nursing V /12/2012

2 Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education is an Indigenous only training facility, that caters specifically to the needs of Indigenous learners. Indigenous people come from across Australia to study at one of our campus locations in the Northern Territory, either in Batchelor (100km south of Darwin) or the Desert Peoples Centre, located in Alice Springs. Batchelor Institute Overview

3 Two principles underpin all aspects of the Institute. 1 Cultural interaction and cross-cultural learning that follows a ‘Both-ways’ philosophy which enables exploration of Indigenous Australian traditions of knowledge and Western academic disciplinary positions and cultural contexts. 2 Through its work and its courses, Batchelor Institute affirms the aspiration to self-determination and employment held by Indigenous Australians.

4 The Australian Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Education (ACIKE) is a joint initiative between Charles Darwin University (CDU) and the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education (BIITE). The aim is to provide a shared facility for the delivery of a specific range of Higher Education and Post Graduate study options which address the needs of Indigenous Australia. ACIKE Overview

5 Through the ACIKE partnership BIITE will now be able to offer a more comprehensive range of Higher Education study options, including dedicated courses specifically designed to support Indigenous students. When you enrol in an ACIKE course you will have student privileges at both BIITE and CDU including computer access, student , learning spaces, Academic Support Advisors, disability support (if needed) and tutorial support. ACIKE Overview

7 The Bachelor of Nursing course has a particular focus on the perspectives and needs of Indigenous people and the tropical and desert environments of the Northern Territory including remote communities, within an evidence-based, multidisciplinary, teaching and learning framework. The Bachelor of Nursing

8 The underpinning principles of comprehensive primary health care, namely: cultural safety in practice, in particular to addressing the needs of Indigenous and multi-cultural Australians; recognising the value of using a population health approach for the prevention, early detection and management of chronic diseases; providing appropriate evidence-based care; and the ability to work in multi- disciplinary teams is embedded throughout the Bachelor of Nursing program in both content and assessment.

All students must attend and pass a one-week clinical teaching block for every year of full-time equivalent study. Students must also complete clinical placement units. Course Delivery

10 Learnline – students will use this computer program to access information about the units that they are enrolled in. This information will include unit information, topic lecture notes, assessment details, discussion boards, readings and staff contact numbers. As Learnline is used with all units in the course it is important that students own or have access to a computer and the internet Course Delivery

11 External – Students who are working or may have other commitments may choose to study externally. This means that they do not have to come to workshops but can do their study using the learnline system. Regular contact with Bachelor of Nursing staff will enable them to discuss their progress and any issues they may have in regards to their study. Course Delivery

12 The course consists of 24 units. Two common units provide students with the foundation knowledge and skills necessary to complete the course successfully, prepare them for lifelong learning and promote the concept of cultural safety in practice, in particular to addressing the needs of Indigenous and multicultural Australians.
