Experiential Learning
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is linked to the clinical learning outcomes of the programme.

Work integrated learning (WIL) is compulsory. The purpose of creating experiential learning opportunities is to prepare the learner nurse to function effectively and competently in this field of study and to be skilled in ethical decision-making and moral reasoning by the end of the programme. WIL in the graduate programme includes clinical nursing practice activities, Theory and Skills lab activities, as well as placement in healthcare facilities.

WIL (also called experiential learning, work-based learning or co-operative learning) focuses on the application of academic learning in a world-of-work context. The focus of experiential learning is for learner nurses to apply and develop their knowledge and skills in a work place environment. Work place practice and skills development will contribute to improved chances of employability and will assist in developing personal skills.
