You will learn how documentation demonstrates a commitment to providing safe, effective, ethical care and accountability for professional practice. You will learn the Canadian standards of documentation, types of nursing reports, and discuss methods of recording data. Prerequisite: LPN/RN (You will be required to provide your license number at the time of registration.)
