Schizophrenia (Nursing)

by Brenda Marshall, EdD, MSN, RN

Caring for someone with schizophrenia requires compassion, support, and knowledge of the changes that have occurred in their brain. These patients, often requiring various forms of healthcare, may present at clinics, emergency rooms, and different kinds of in-patient units. Knowledge of the disease is crucial to provide them with quality care.

In this course, you will learn about the changes in the brain that occur in this patient population, typical presentation of the disease, important nursing interventions, and how schizophrenia is managed.

You will also learn about positive and negative symptoms specific to schizophrenia and relevant pharmacotherapy.
