Professional Clinical Nursing 1 begins to adequately prepare the nursing student for basic clinical skills in a variety of settings to work as a registered nurse. You will learn basic medical / surgical knowledge and skills to excel in the program.
I learned medical / surgical skills including assessments, how to read labs, monitor patient vital signs, signs and symptoms, and how to respond in a multitude of patient situations. You will begin to learn about all the body systems, diseases, and appropriate treatment plans for many patient clinical situations.
