Perioperative nursing is one of the most rewarding careers you can have as you strive to prolong and improve the quality of a patient’s life, pre- and post-operation. It offers unending challenges and areas of professional and personal growth, demanding emotional stamina, attention to detail, flexibility, technical skills and an ability to communicate effectively.
This course will provide all you need to know about patients’ surgical experiences and how to care for them. You will learn essential skills and knowledge in patient counselling, evidence-based practice, and identifying laboratory data for health assessment.
You will gain an understanding of the Singapore health system, the pathophysiology of the diseased state, the legal and medical issues in nursing practice, the various sub-disciplines of surgical procedures, and patient counselling. You will also gain experience in applying what you have learnt through clinical training.
