Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation Report

Feedback

"I like the way the lectures were laid out for the students in moodle but I think the time needed to complete each module with lots of readings on it before the assessment's deadline is not enough. I maybe reading slowly than what I should do and this is my first time studying course online."

Recommendation

Reconsider the number of readings required in the unit. Create a schedule that outlines the unit activities and time to complete the activity.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation Report Classroom discussions

Feedback

Students wanted more lecture time to go through activities and theory.

Recommendation

Increase the lecture time from 1hr to 2 hrs. Introduce study groups so that students can learn from one another.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation Report

Feedback

While the content was heavy, the teaching staff presented it in a way that was easy to learn.

Recommendation

Continue with constructive alignment approach. Continue with consolidation activities which are aligned to lectures and the assignment. Compliment the teaching approach with study groups.

Task Description

UNIT CODE NURS20161
Contemporary Australian Healthcare
Assessment 1– Written assessment

Type: Portfolio

Due date: Week 6 Friday 22nd April 2022

Weighting: 50%

Length: Word count 2000 +/- 10%


Unit Coordinator: Simone Ohlin


Learning Outcomes Assessed

2. Analyse the role of government in the provision of healthcare in Australia

3. Compare and contrast nursing roles in the contemporary models of healthcare used in Australia.

Aim

In this assignment you will demonstrate your knowledge of the role of Federal and State Governments in funding and governance of healthcare. You will then compare different nursing roles in Australia.

Instructions

This written assessment has two parts; each part should be approximately 1000 words. You should approach this assessment as a written essay, and we encourage the use of headings if it will help in structuring your academic argument.

Part 1.

Analyse the role of the Federal and State Governments in the funding and governance of the Australian public, private and not-for-profit health care sectors.

Direction: Your response should include a brief description of the public, private and not-for-profit health sectors.

Part 2.

Analyse the role of Registered Nurses in the public, private and not for profit health sectors.

Direction: Your response should:

1. Extend from part 1 (i.e., what is the Federal and State Governments role in funding and governance for registered nurses).

2. Include real examples drawn from industry. For example, you could use position descriptions located on recruitment websites.

3. Consider elements such as the scope of practice, career path, etc.

Literature and references

In this assessment, we expect that you will draw most of your literature from grey literature sources (I.e., government websites, hospital recruitment websites, peak nursing bodies). When searching the grey literature, please consider the five elements of quality reference material: currency, authority, relevance, objectivity, and coverage.

We expect you will use between 7 and 10 contemporary references (<5 years) to support your discussion. However, you should also use original (seminal) literature (legislation, for example) where relevant.

Requirements

1. Use a conventional and legible size 12 font, such as Times New Roman or Arial, with 1.5 line spacing and 2.54cm page margins (standard pre-set margin in Microsoft Word).

2. Please include a cover page that has the Unit name, code, assignment title, your name and student number and the name of the lecturer.

3. Write in the third-person perspective.

4. Use formal academic language.

5. Use the seventh edition American Psychological Association (APA) referencing style. The CQUniversity Academic Learning Centre has an online APA Referencing Style Guide.

6. The word count is considered from the first word of the introduction to the last word of the conclusion. The word count excludes the reference list but includes in-text references and direct quotations.

Resources

1. You can use unit provided materials and other credible sources (e.g. journal articles, books) to reference your argument. The quality and credibility of your sources are important.

2. We recommend that you access your discipline specific library guide: the Nursing Resource Guide.

3. For information on academic communication please go to the Academic Learning Centre Moodle site. The Academic Communication section has many helpful resources including information for students with English as a second language.

4.. Submit a draft before the due date to review your Turnitin Similarity Score before making a final submission. Instructions are available here.

Submission

Submit your assessment via the unit Moodle site in Microsoft Word format only.

If students receive a Fail grade for this assessment, the Unit Coordinator may allow them an opportunity to reattempt the assessment. In order for the Unit Coordinator to allow a re-attempt, they will need to be satisfied that the student has made a reasonable attempt in the assessment item.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
