Introduction to Geriatrics (Nursing)

by Rhonda Lawes, PhD, RN

Geriatrics is the branch of nursing that studies elderly patients and the changes they experience as they age. To be capable of providing better care and protection for these patients, nurses need to be knowledgeable about the normal anatomic and physiologic changes that adults undergo as they transition into the geriatric segment of the population.

In this course, you’ll learn about the changes that occur in the various body systems, how these changes can lead to disease, and what the modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors are for certain diseases.
