Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System (Nursing)

by Darren Salmi, MD, MS
The musculoskeletal system consists of all of the muscles, bones, cartilage, and connective tissues in the body. This course is an in-depth look at the structure of this system, therefore a basic anatomical understanding of this system would be beneficial. As the musculoskeletal system has the potential to be impacted by every nursing intervention, a comprehensive understanding of this system is essential for every nurse, regardless of where they work.

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!

The Instructor is very clear and takes his time by explaining every part of the anatomy of the skull and then at the end of the video it is a quiz to make sure you understand what you are learning
