Learning Nurse e-Learning Modules

Narrated Presentations

Here are the e-Learning modules and simulations that we have created so far.

1. Learning to Learn Tutorial – this Flash video tutorial is designed to motivate and assist health care practitioners to embrace ongoing professional development. The tutorial describes why professional development is important; how to assess, plan and evaluate learning activities; and, provides suggestions as how to make learning most effective and successful.

Simulations

Welcome to the Learning Nurse Diagnosis Simulations section of this website. Here we offer simulations where you have to determine the most probable condition or cause from the symptoms and physical findings.

Each simulation includes several clients / cases with different related disorders. You can ask each client / patient a series of questions and view their physical assessment findings. A description of the disorders and a detailed quiz are also included for your learning pleasure.

This section is still under development and testing. We will continue to revise / enhance our simulations and add new ones as they become available. Please let us know which models and topics you would like to see us develop and make available to you.
