Prime yourself for your Tests – Study Questions To work successfully with patients in any setting, the nurse must be nonjudgmental and convey respect for patients’ beliefs, even if they differ sharply from the nurse’s.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
