Nursing Skills Workshops
Thinking of changing an area of specialty but feel a little rusty in past learned nursing skills? The purpose of these courses is to provide the registered nurse with hands-on-techniques combined with current nursing theory knowledge necessary in providing comprehensive patient care in the following areas:
- Wound Care
- Enteral feedings and Colostomy Care
- Respiratory Care
- Injections and IV Care
- GU skills and Catheterizations
Wound care objectives will focus on listing the classifications of wounds and the complications of wound healing. Enteral feedings and colostomy care objectives will discuss the anatomy and physiology of the GI track and describe 3 types of ostomies. Respiratory care objectives will describe mechanical ventilation with nursing management and explain acid-base regulation and arterial blood gases. Injections and IV care objectives will explain parenteral nutrition and discuss injection type syringes with proper placement/landmarks. GU skills and catheterizationsobjectives will list 3 terms used to describe altered urine production and discuss various diagnostic tests used to evaluate kidney function.
