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.
