Nursing Skills

7901391994_dabb922974_zWatching review videos can help to increase nursing students’ confidence and competence in performing nursing skills independently. Some students like to watch videos prior to coming to the class where the skill will be taught, others use them as a guide when practicing after class. There are many free videos available online and students should be aware of potential differences in supplies used as well as policy and procedure followed. If in doubt, students should always check with their instructor to ensure that they are practicing in a manner supported by recent, reliable research. Hawknurse on Youtube offers a series of  videos prepared by a  nursing instructor from Delaware, USA. The University of Manitoba also has a wide range of skills videos with the benefit of a Canadian perspective; Year 1 and Year 2.
