Nursing is a fundamentally important profession within the health care sector. The nursing profession focuses on delivering quality care to sick individuals within hospital settings and also provides care to individuals and families within society. This nursing course provides an overview of the skills, techniques, and approaches required to effectively provide treatment to a diverse range of patients.

This course will introduce the learner to aspects and concepts of general health, communication techniques and methods used to determine a patient's basic needs to ensure that the adequate level of care is provided. You will learn about how patients can react and respond to illness and hospitalisation. You will then learn about the therapeutic communication techniques, interview techniques and communication approaches to apply when treating patients who are blind, deaf and speakers of other languages.

You will also learn about transcultural nursing techniques and how to address issues associated with providing medical care to diverse cultural groups, or those from cultures different from the nursing professionals. The course also creates an awareness of the impact and associated challenges that can exist when providing patient care in transcultural settings.

This nursing course will be of great interest to health care workers who would like to learn more about nursing skills and treatment approaches for a diverse range of patients, and to any learner who is interested in pursuing nursing as a career.
