Musculoskeletal System – Physiology (Nursing)

by Jasmine Clark

The musculoskeletal system is involved in many common injuries and patient complaints. Moreover, this system is involved in maintaining calcium homeostasis. Therefore, knowledge about the musculoskeletal system is important for nurses working in a wide range of specialties.

In this course, you will learn about calcium metabolism, joint anatomy and structures, the functions of the skeletal system, the muscles and muscle metabolism, and how impulses lead to muscle contraction. In addition, we’ll discuss common disorders associated with the musculoskeletal system, bone fractures, and bone regeneration, and briefly review the differences between skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, and smooth muscle.
