Neurocognitive and Neurodegenerative Disorders (Nursing)

by Brenda Marshall, EdD, MSN, RN

Patients suffering from neurodegenerative disorders require special nursing care. Nurses taking care of patients with these disorders must not only be knowledgeable of the conditions but also possess traits such as patience and calmness.

The most common neurodegenerative diseases are Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, and multiple sclerosis. In this course, you’ll learn about these conditions, how they present clinically, and how they are treated.

You will also learn about other neurocognitive disorders, such as delirium and dementia, and the related nursing care.

Excellent educational bitesize course on neurodegenerative disorders
By Michael B. on 06. February 2024 for Neurocognitive and Neurodegenerative Disorders: Summary (Nursing)

I'm currently about to commence placement inside an acute unit for neurodegenerative disorders and these lectures have helped me to prepare and gain a solid foundation for what I will encounter, how I will think about the patients and their caregivers. It also helped me to understand the different stages of dementia, and how it can affect the patient. Thanks for this!

Makes you think of the possible connections in assessment
By Michael B. on 05. February 2024 for Neurocognitive Disorders (Nursing)

I liked that with the case the lecturer used with husband and wife, it made me think delirum but also dementia and connect the dots with the assessment of the wifes comments. Really good interesting video.

Excellent lectures for preparing for mental health placement

I am about to undergo my mental health placement on a acute dementia/delirum setting for mental health. These topics will prepare me with the theory side of going to placement so i'm not as daunted. Thank you for these lectures.

Great lecture on neurocognitive decline
By Melanie R. on 04. October 2023 for Introduction: Neurocognitive and Neurodegenerative Disorders (Nursing)

Very engaging. Good explanations. I appreciate the caution to address the people in the way that they want to be addressed and not by terms of endearment like "Honey" or "Sweetie."
