Nursing students learn a lot of hands-on skills! Physical assessment usually starts with vital signs measurements - temperature, pulse, respiration, and blood pressure - and obtaining a patient's history. Students then progress through body systems to learn how to assess cranial nerves, the eyes, the ears, the heart and lungs, the abdomen, etc. Nursing students also learn a lot about therapeutic communication, how to bathe patients, administer oral medications and injections, start IVs, insert urinary catheters, take care of colostomies, administer oxygen, insert nasogastric tubes, administer tube feedings, and much more!
