Safe Medication Administration (PHAR-1608)
Administration of medications requires diligence in following the policies and procedures to prevent injuries, complications, or errors. Nurses are responsible for ensuring that they are familiar with and understand how to safely prepare their clients and their medications appropriately.
In this course you will review basic pharmacology including common classifications of medications, effects of drugs in the body, and the assessment and evaluation of the patient following the administration of medications. You will practice calculating correct medication dosages. You will also review nursing responsibilities related to the preparation, administration, and evaluation of medications given via enteral, percutaneous, parenteral, intradermal, subcutaneous, and intramuscular routes.
