Anatomy (Nursing)

by Darren Salmi, MD, MS
Human anatomy, the study of the structure and function of the body, is a foundational component of nursing knowledge. This course offers an in-depth look at the structures of the human body, separated by body systems.

As this course provides a detailed look at body structures, a basic understanding of anatomy is required to fully grasp the nuances of human anatomy.

As every nursing intervention has the potential to affect the structure and function of the human body, a robust understanding of anatomy is essential to providing safe, competent, and effective nursing care.

So helpful for anatomical planes and positions
By Karina M. on 24. August 2023 for Anatomical Terminology (Nursing)

Thank you so much Dr. Salmi for breaking down the terminology as well as showing videos of what you are talking about. I was getting ventral, dorsal, distal, proximal, sagittal, and coronal planes all mixed up beforehand, but watching your video helped immensely!
