HLN700 Dissertation

To ensure high quality practice, advanced level practitioners are continually required to reflect upon and modify their own practice to incorporate knowledge of the most recent research evidence. This requires advanced skills in the critical evaluation, interpretation and application of research. The dissertation provides advanced skill development in these areas, and enables you to undertake a research project in a specialised area of practice. HLN700 Dissertation is offered in Semester 1, Semester 2 and Summer. No student should enrol in any offering until they have secured a Supervisor who is available during that semester. Note: The Summer offering is not available to Nursing students. Students in the School of Nursing should contact nursing.admin@qut.edu.au in the semester prior to enrolment for further information and guidance on supervision.
