Nursing Skills Online 4.0 for Canadian Fundamentals of Nursing (User Guide and Access Code), 6th Edition
Online Course - Access Card
Provide your students with a dynamic environment for learning clinical nursing skills and mastering critical thinking. Developed specifically for Canadian health care practice, Nursing Skills Online 4.0 includes 19 modules with realistic, case-based lessons that focus on 66 skills that are difficult to master, labour-intensive to teach, or pose the greatest risk to patient safety. Lesson content — which corresponds to Potter and Perry’s Canadian Fundamentals of Nursing, 6th Edition (or Canadian Clinical Nursing Skills & Techniques, First Edition) — is chunked into easy-to-digest sections and paired with interactive exercises to develop students’ ability to analyse a situation and respond with the most effective clinical care (the "why" of clinical care). Each lesson also uses a combination of videos, animations, slide shows, textbook reading assignments, and self-assessment tests to make learning easier and more dynamic. Give your students a leg up in critical thinking and career preparation with this proven learning tool.
