Therapeutic Communication (NURS-1674)

Communication is one of the most important skills used in your nursing practice. The ability to understand and implement both verbal and nonverbal cues into your interactions will enhance the quality of nursing care you provide to your clients. In this course you will begin by describing the components of the therapeutic relationship. You will be introduced to the process of communication. Communication techniques that enhance the process of the therapeutic relationship will be discussed such as active listening, effective use of silence, and paraphrasing. You will describe two dimensions of therapeutic relationships. You will then practice these skills with an interactive assignment. Prerequisite: LPN/RN (You will be required to provide your license number at the time of registration.)
