Top rated online course

Safe patient care requires nurses to be experts in both assessment and technical clinical skills. This course will help novice nursing students start to master physical assessment and psychomotor skills such as starting IVs, managing an ostomy, or suctioning a patient. Samantha Rhea has extensive clinical experience and has mastered preparing nursing students for clinical practice. Most nursing school clinical labs have one faculty for several students, and it can be difficult to view and learn these skills in. This course eliminates that problem for students as our team has provided cutting edge videos using 3 cameras and detailed labelling to make sure each student with Lecturio has an up-close view of foundational nursing skills. Samantha Rhea is a practicing nurse and a passionate nurse educator with extensive clinical experience. You will learn clinical topics with a strong orientation to NCLEX preparation at your own pace!

Frequently asked questions about clinical skills for nurses

1. What are clinical skills in nursing?

In nursing school there are theoretical lectures and clinical lessons. In that theory you learn the essential knowledge which you should apply in clinical skills. Other than that clinical teaches you vital hands-on skills to use in your career. In Clinical Skills course students are tested on nursing skills by performing certain clinical nursing skills in front of their instructor. Sometimes mannequin simulators are used to help the student learn. Basic skills are starting an IV, inserting a Foley catheter, putting on sterile gloves, blood transfusions and tracheotomy care.

2. How to improve clinical reasoning skills in nursing?

In the clinical skills course you refine your skills in recognizing and interpreting clinical signs and symptoms. Through active engagement, you can practice deliberately to cultivate your clinical reasoning skills. To develop skills in clinical reasoning, you must intentionally practice applying your knowledge to clinical cases, either virtual (e.g., paper, online, standardized patient) or real (e.g., patient care).
Otherwise learning in a group setting often helps each member achieve more. Try to ask open-ended questions that do not assume “one right answer.” because critical thinking is most likely to be improved when there is no “”right”” answer.

3. How to pass clinical skills in nursing?

Here are some helpful tips how to pass nursing clinical skills:

  • sleep enough the day before clinical day because you can be upto 12 hours in the lab
  • exactly follow orders because nursing school has strict rules and minimal tolerance for disregarding them
  • pay attention, make notes, ask questions
  • stay focused and avoid distractions while learning and soak up every experience
  • try to have some fun “

So easy to understand and remember.

by Aries A. on 2022-12-24 for Bed Bathing and Making an Occupied Bed (Nursing)

I like how the nurse explains in simple words and goes step by step while demonstrating the process.

Thank you

by Ami A. on 2022-12-05 for Opening a Sterile Kit (Nursing)

i didn´t know about the inch, thank you so much!

Amazing

by Indya W. on 2022-11-23 for Vital Signs (Nursing)

Love this program it's very helpful and I'm actually learning how to become a better nurse

Appropriate even for seasoned !

by Shannon F. on 2022-10-23 for Pulse – Vital Signs (Nursing)

I clicked on this just to see what it was about, but it filled in gaps that I did not realize I had :) GREAT JOB

thanks nurse samantha!

by Karen S. on 2022-08-03 for Blood Administration: Pre-procedure (Nursing)

so much better than the long drawn out training I got in school, followed by rapid fire quizes and not much review in class

Accurate and informative

by Arnoldo C. on 2022-07-15 for Subcutaneous (SubQ) Medication Administration: Drawing Medicine out of a Vial (Nursing)

My college instructor requires us to withdraw only the amount prescribed by the provider and to only withdraw the amount prescribed too. I like your method better because it allows me to clear the air from the needle early on while withdrawing the medication. Also, it is hard to withdraw 0.5mL air and then putting that 0.5mL because it is not enough air to create pressure to come back. I noticed I had difficulty withdrawing such a small quantity and the little air I put in made no difference. By putting more air in and withdrawing a larger amount then pushing back it, this is much easier. While I did pass my skill checkoff using my instructor method, this is definitely good to know for clinical practice.

Could have been executed better in my opinion.

by Peter V. on 2022-05-21 for Intravenous (IV) Catheter Insertion (Nursing)

Lecture went great until insertion in my opinion. I think that the vein occlusion in conjunction with releasing the tourniquet prior to retracting the needle would have prevented that blood flow. Not only does this make the area more sanitary for the provider and the patient, but patients can be squeamish at the sight of their own blood.
