Fundamentals of Nursing

Never before has there been a greater need for nurses. Never before has health care delivery challenged the nurse's commitment, knowledge, or technical competence more. Issues influencing current health-care delivery focus on promoting wellness, preventing illness, and rehabilitation to increase the patient's independence. This course presents the theory and concepts that a person beginning their study of nursing will need to know in order to develop the knowledge and competence demanded by the complexity of the changing health care system.

This is your chance to learn and develop your skills as LPN, practical nurse, nurses aide, or other professional caregiver.

It is absolutely essential that you regard this course as a study aid.  Procedures involving the use of drugs and invasive procedures must be supervised by licensed professionals in a fully accredited educational institution.
