I should have started my learning here!
ALL of the videos on this topic were SUPER EASY to understand and WELL ARTICULATED! This helped me grasped the basics faster than any other in -person teaching I've had when it comes to understanding sterility and the pending questions I had about scenarios in opening sterile items but without gloves. Thanks so much Nurse Rhea! - Kat
The lecture was informative and very visually appealing. Samantha made the revision of the topic look easier. - Jigi

In physical assessment in nursing, you have to demonstrate your knowledge and skills in physical examination techniques. To do this, you must apply knowledge of nursing procedures and psychomotor skills to physical examination techniques. You also have to select the appropriate equipment for examination. In addition you have to consider which equipment and techniques are appropriate for the patient. The selection may be influenced by the patient’s age or vital signs measurements. Furthermore, physical assessment includes conducting a comprehensive health assessment of the patient.
You have to implement the following steps to complete a physical assessment:
Assessment includes overall physical, emotional and behavioral state of the patient. Considerations for all patients include:

This video was very thorough and easy to follow. I needed a refresher before going into my preceptorship and this was very helpful! :)
by Karen S. on 2022-04-24 for Head-to-toe Assessment (Nursing)
prev rater was harsh this was much better than the instruction i got so giving it a good rating since it helped and was easy to understand, the landmarking wasnt included here but ive studied plenty myself so if youre looking for that just find an image online and count them on yourself/percuss on yourself
by Karen S. on 2022-04-24 for How to Do a Head-to-toe Assessment (Nursing)
the organization with listed infographics were very helpful to reinforce the logic of head to toe, and was a good summary for head to toe assessment
by Fatima Zahra B. on 2022-04-21 for Head-to-toe Assessment (Nursing)
she did not name the intercostal landmark spaces on the chest where we suppose to to auscultate
by Belen J. on 2021-12-13 for Breath Sounds – Advanced Assessment
Though informative I feel that this lesson would be stronger if there were examples of the breath sounds described.
by Lizandro R. on 2021-12-13 for Nursing Assessment of the Neurological System: Theory and Glasgow Coma Scale (GSC)
Breaks down GSC very well. And the use of example at the end helps to understand it better
by Adenike B. on 2021-11-23 for Nursing Assessment of the Heart
I was able to understand the lecture, I like everything about the lecture: it was precise. I have already recommended this program to a friend.
by ankita P. on 2021-10-30 for Nursing Assessment of the Head and Neck
The videos are educational and good refresher to your nursing knowledge.
by Elizabeth Y. on 2021-11-20 for Assessment of the Cardiovascular System (Nursing)
Dr Holt is a gem! He has helped me so much grasp the concepts of assessment on different body systems. I adore his lectures! He is amazing
by Elizabeth Y. on 2021-11-13 for Assessment of the Head and Neck – Advanced
Dr. Holt is excellent at taking complicated scenarios to new or student nurses and simply explaining and showing us how easy it can be done. His explanations and techniques are such a blessing. He eases anyone into understanding and being able to mimic his exams as if we are well-trained practitioners. I am looking forward to learning more. I also know that he teaches us some neurological testing that can later certify nurses in the NIH A-D (American Heart training) for specialized training. His teachings are so great that on the first exam, I scored a 93 and passed, and I am not even a nurse yet. I will be beginning school this Feb of 2022. I was able to take the exam for those wondering since I am not a nurse because I am an EMT aspiring to be a nurse.
by Elizabeth Y. on 2021-11-02 for Assessment of the Neuromuscular and Neurological System (Nursing)
Professor Holt is amazing in presenting any form of nursing material. She breaks things down and explains it detail by detail which makes it easier to u deter and and remember. Any class she teaches… I am there
