Medical Surgical Nursing and Pathophysiology

by Prof. Lawes

Medical-surgical (med-surg) nursing is the foundational unit and heart of the nursing profession—what one might consider to be the bread-and-butter setting. Many new graduate nurses start their professional careers in med-surg units because this setting exposes them to a broad patient population with many health challenges. They may then branch out to more specialized and advanced units, such as the emergency department or the intensive care unit, after working for a couple of years gaining many skills on med-surg floors.

In this course, we will introduce you to the vast array of pathophysiologies, pharmacology, laboratory interpretations, and treatments that are commonly seen in med-surg units.

By Lizandro R. on 22. November 2022 for Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology (Nursing)

Great Breakdown and explanation. You guys make things so easy to understand. I get really frustrated with the book since it's really hard for me to sit down and read through a whole chapter, so it's a relief to have such a great breakdown on these subjects. Thank you

I love the way she breaks things down. Whenever she pops up in the lectures I know I am going to walk away knowing more than I did before.
