Fundamentals of Nursing: Clinical Skills

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

Our expert will show you how to apply Clinical Nursing Skills!

Safe patient care requires nurses to be experts in both assessment and technical clinical skills. This course will help novice nursing students start to master physical assessment and psychomotor skills such as starting IVs, managing an ostomy, or suctioning a patient.

Samantha Rhea has extensive clinical experience and has mastered preparing nursing students for clinical practice.

Most nursing school clinical labs have one faculty for several students, and it can be difficult to view and learn these skills in. This course eliminates that problem for students as our team has provided cutting edge videos using 3 cameras and detailed labelling to make sure each student with Lecturio has an up-close view of foundational nursing skills.

Samantha Rhea is a practicing nurse and a passionate nurse educator with extensive clinical experience.

You will learn clinical topics with a strong orientation to NCLEX preparation at your own pace:

  • Intravenous (IV) catheter insertion and removal
  • Hand hygiene
  • General wound care concepts
  • Different forms of medication administration
  • Moving and positioning clients in bed

In addition to watching our high-quality video lectures, you can practice on quiz questions and download study materials. Start learning today!

thanks nurse samantha!
By Karen S. on 03. August 2022 for Blood Administration: Pre-procedure (Nursing)

so much better than the long drawn out training I got in school, followed by rapid fire quizes and not much review in class

Accurate and informative
By Arnoldo C. on 15. July 2022 for Subcutaneous (SubQ) Medication Administration: Drawing Medicine out of a Vial (Nursing)

My college instructor requires us to withdraw only the amount prescribed by the provider and to only withdraw the amount prescribed too. I like your method better because it allows me to clear the air from the needle early on while withdrawing the medication. Also, it is hard to withdraw 0.5mL air and then putting that 0.5mL because it is not enough air to create pressure to come back. I noticed I had difficulty withdrawing such a small quantity and the little air I put in made no difference. By putting more air in and withdrawing a larger amount then pushing back it, this is much easier. While I did pass my skill checkoff using my instructor method, this is definitely good to know for clinical practice.

Great refresher
By Neuer V. on 06. July 2022 for Tracheostomy Care: Post-procedure and Possible Complications (Nursing)

Informative and super helpful! It helped me remember what i learned in lab.

Could have been executed better in my opinion.
By Peter V. on 22. May 2022 for Intravenous (IV) Catheter Insertion (Nursing)

Lecture went great until insertion in my opinion. I think that the vein occlusion in conjunction with releasing the tourniquet prior to retracting the needle would have prevented that blood flow. Not only does this make the area more sanitary for the provider and the patient, but patients can be squeamish at the sight of their own blood.
