Focusing on the skills that are most labor-intensive to teach and that pose the greatest risk to patient safety, this online course is the perfect tool to help students review and evaluate their competency before performing skills in the clinical setting. Packaged with the parent text, Fundamentals of Nursing, 3rd edition, this innovative online course consists of 17 modules, with each module comprising several lessons. Each lesson provides a content overview, a variety of interactive exercises, self-check activities, and an exam. In addition to schools of nursing, this is also a valuable and timesaving means of providing periodic training and competency evaluation for nursing staff. This online course is also available separately.
