Nursing Skills Online Version 2.0 for Fundamentals of Nursing, 7th Edition
Make sure you can perform nursing skills with confidence! Nursing Skills Online lets you review procedures before you perform them in the clinical setting. Corresponding to Potter and Perry's Fundamentals of Nursing, 7th Edition, this online course focuses on the skills that are more difficult to master or pose the greatest risk to patient safety. It includes 18 modules with realistic, case-based lessons each providing a content overview, reading assignments, interactive exercises, and tests. Lessons use videos, animations, slide shows, and other visuals to make learning easier and more interesting.
