This collection goes beyond clinical skills videos to include content that emphasizes “softer” career-building skills and techniques that help nurses better understand and care for the “whole patient.” Some of the specific areas covered include: communication skills, nursing theory and history, global and population health, and nurses’ role in advocacy and policy. Designed to complement nursing clinical skills education, this collection helps students understand and treat the “whole patient” and be able to respond to the rapidly changing health care system.
