  • Diana Howard
    Diana Howard United States of America I think the study unit was very resourceful and insightful with preparations for a practical nurse guideline with Nurse and patient teachings, and it's learning methods. It demonstrates the necessary capabilities and needed tactics for developing strengths and weaknesses in being informative and having the ability to produce and provide knowledge and data when it comes to helping a patient reach a full understanding of the potential needs for self- care in order to achieve a desired goal in improving health issues. The studies helps aid patients in learning what type of learner they are. Collection of patient data allows the nurse to achieve a more direct path of what educational backgrounds and the capacity of the patients ability for understanding data. The Nurse must utilize three domains within the realm of patient teaching. The Nurse ensure that the patient improvement is achieved through short term or long term sessions of how effective teaching has taken place. The nurse must pay adequate attention in the patients level of anxiety and make the patient feel at a level of comfort by helping to minimize the stress of the unknown and guide the patient into factors of what they already know and have the patient demonstrate what the achieved by the nurse question and answer tactics. The Nurse can counsel and educate patients by demonstration of equipment, one to one counsel, group counsel , role play and modeling . I believe this unit was very much beneficial and has provided a more in depth understanding for being able to teach patients with confidence. 2015-09-26 17:09:16

    Georgios Kalaitzantonakis United Kingdom The non clinical skills are equally essential as the clinical. It is very important for a good nurse to have the knowledge to be a good and fair team leader and can share the knowledge both to colleagues and patients for the proper training in matters of health. This course offers really important knowledge to the nurses who want to become better and to acquire expertise in non clinical skills like the team leader and teacher course. 2015-09-17 14:09:28

  • maria  Evelyn cruz,gonzalez
    maria Evelyn cruz,gonzalez United States of America I feel that a nurse should always do his or her best to maintain the students and help in areas that confuse or become difficult to the them. She should try to find different forms of study simply because everyone has a different way of learning. A nurse as a teacher should have her heart into the job she has and make it an unforgettable. She should show each individual the same treatment and show them that she will do her job as long as the put there efforts in she wont give up and nor will she give in. 2014-12-03 18:12:05
