I AM A Nurse

Nursing content can be overwhelming and confusing to the new nursing student. Incorporating concepts related to anatomy/physiology, microbiology, sociology, human development, pharmacology, and teaching/learning can be a daunting task. The literature is filled with acronyms, charts, and organizational tools to help the nursing student navigate nursing courses. To enjoy these resources, most have a fee attached to them. That may not be a problem under normal circumstances as there may be scholarships or financial aid that may ease some of the financial burden. To lessen this financial burden and to address inclusion and equity, this Nursing OER is designed to help the nursing student organize material in an easy to follow format, while developing clinical judgment at the same time. It can be utilized in theory as well as skills lab and clinical rotations.
