Nervous System – Physiology (Nursing)

Nervous System – Physiology (Nursing)

by Jasmine Clark, PhD

Nurses frequently assess the nervous systems of patients by evaluating the pupils, checking for neurovascular complications, and asking questions to determine patients’ level of consciousness and awareness. When neurological emergencies occur, nurses are often the first medical professionals to notice a change in a patient’s function. Therefore, it’s critical to have a solid understanding of the nervous system and know how to appropriately assess neurological status.

In this course, you’ll learn the basic structure and function of the nervous system. You will also learn the basic functions at a cellular level and discuss action potentials, ion channels, and synapses. Additionally, we’ll cover common neurotransmitters and disorders of the nervous system.
