Neuro Wise – A Crash Course for New Neuro Nurses
Neuro Wise is designed for nurses that are new to care of the acute care neuro patient. With hundreds of enrollments, Neuro Wise is a crowd favorite at FreshRN with many rave reviews. Below are a selection of testimonials from some of our happy customers.
I noticed a slight disconjugate gaze on a patient they went for CT and had a bleed. I even got an award for it on my unit. –Kristen Rapp, MS RN – Neuro ICU
I love this course (and all of Kati’s courses). She somehow is so thorough in the information, while also making the information easy to comprehend. She interests me in her lectures. I have experience in medical/ surgical/ telemetry and will soon transfer to an intensive care unit floating in between a cardiac and neuro icu. As a nurse with little experience with neuro and critical patient, I believe her neuro crash course and her icu crash course has helped prepare me for this transition!
Most recently, I was able to detect a pupillary change in my patient that was likely related to over-sedation. Nonetheless, I escalated care, advocating for my patient and clarifying the patient’s actual RASS score as compared to what had been documented. Understanding the importance of obtaining an accurate baseline neurological assessment empowers me to communicate all findings to the team. All of the FreshRN courses are helpful and encouraging. Kati Kleber and her colleagues share must know information that may be otherwise challenging to learn during orientation. You can also go back to the lessons at any time to review course content, and preparation is ultimately the key to becoming a competent and safe nurse.Inga Schwartz, MSN, RN, CNL, NREMT – Critical Care Unit
This course gave me the information I needed to sound confident in my unit about basic concepts and the courage to ask questions about what I didn’t understand! I’m able to communicate more effectively with my neurosurgeons and feel much more equipped to give them the information they are looking for when they round! It’s been such a confidence booster for me right off of orientation – I am so thankful for the work you do for all us baby nurses!! It is 150% worth it – I’ve told every single new grad on my unit about it since I was hired!
It helped me simplify Neuro content for pre- licensure nursing students in my classroom. It is excellent content. Delivers value!Katrina Watson, RN, MSN, CNEcl – Educator
I have only just started this course, but I’m starting my orientation as a new grad in Neuro ICU next week, and this course combined with the Breakthrough ICU course feels like it’s going to make a huge difference in how I approach new scenarios, coworkers, and disease processes. I’m very excited to continue with it and appreciate you guys for sharing your amazing knowledge and experience!
I have been a neuro IMC to ICU bridge nurse for the past year. FINALLY landed a full time neuro critical care job!! But during my time in the bridge program the manager of the ICU awarded me with a Daisy for recognizing a potentially fatal neuro deficit in a patient with a hemicrani. The patient ended up with TWO flaps out! And the patient survived and has been discharged since.Dawn Meadows, BSN RN – Neuro Stepdown & Neuro ICU
I was new to the Neuro world and was not as confident with my assessments and knowledge, until I found your program! It gave me the information I needed to detect even the slightest changes and changed the way I viewed assessments. Each one matters when it comes to Neuro. Thank you.
