Nursing Assessment: Demonstration

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

Performing a nursing assessment is one of the most foundational nursing skills. Nearly all other types of assessments stem from the head-to-toe assessment. This is how nurses notice when changes occur in patients so that clinicians can act on those changes.

In this course, you’ll see a demonstration of how to perform a head-to-toe assessment and what components make up this type of patient evaluation. We’ll highlight what to look for in different parts of the body, note the normal functions of different organs, and call out important body landmarks.

You will also learn about common expectations when it comes to documenting your assessments in the patient chart for other healthcare clinicians to see.

Love how I can retain what she teaches!

I like how Sam breaks sections down, doesn’t speak fast (one of the instructors does that I have to skip her for last) talks with simple, easy to understand words. She keeps the words up long enough for me to read them and talks like she’s talking to me not just rambling stuff away. Thank you! ????

I enjoyed all the lessons

This video was very thorough and easy to follow. I needed a refresher before going into my preceptorship and this was very helpful! :)
