Fundamentals of Nursing: Theory

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

Nursing is a rewarding and highly trusted profession, but it’s also a profession with many demands and challenges. Understanding the guiding professional theories established by previous nurses can help you succeed in challenging healthcare environments.

This course focuses on the foundations of nursing practice. You’ll learn about safe and effective patient care, ethics and legalities in nursing, and how to educate patients. You’ll use nursing theory to organize knowledge-based concepts so you can overcome the obstacles you may face while delivering patient care or managing a team.

You’ll also learn about the important foundational nursing process, which is a systematic framework you’ll use to successfully navigate challenging patient- and work-related situations. Equally important is the mastery of therapeutic communication, a skill that you’ll use every day on the job.

Fundamentals of Nursing
By Lornia R. on 08. November 2023 for Fundamentals of Nursing: Theory

I really enjoyed this course. For example: learning what an ADPIE is and why it's used. Learning when to delegate, how to delegate, who to delegate to. How to communicate with clients, patients, and family. The importance of NANA, ANA, NIC, SMART goals. Moreover, having access to this information before starting nursing school helps to facilitate my learning and how to put things together. Lastly, the videos that walk you through a nursing shift felt like a clinical experience.
