Integumentary System – Physiology (Nursing)

Integumentary System – Physiology (Nursing)

by Jasmine Clark, PhD

In many clinical settings, nurses are charged with the very important responsibility of caring for patients’ skin. Even more crucial, however, is that nurses are responsible for preventing integumentary problems. To achieve this goal, you must know about the integumentary system, how it is injured, and what the skin can tell you about a patient.

In this course, you will learn about the basic structure and function of the integumentary system. We’ll discuss topics such as skin cancer, pressure injuries, and burns. Additionally, you will learn about wound treatment and healing.

This one wasn't very clear and was even confusing at some points despite me only using this for review.
