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

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.
