Stroke Care

The American Heart Association now not only encompasses “Heart Attacks” but also encompasses “Brain Attacks”. The delivery of the care to individuals at risk for stoke or who have sustained a stroke require nurses to possess knowledge and acquire competence in stroke management.

Nurses must use their advanced knowledge in stroke care when providing education about the primary stroke prevention to the public with the intent to help individuals modify behaviors and adopt health practices.

In this course, you will learn:

  • Rapidly identify stroke signs and symptoms
  • Work with a team to providers giving expert care to patients as the move through the hyperacute and acute phases
  • Deliver medications safely
  • Minimize potential complications
  • Optimize rehabilitation
  • Educate patient about secondary stroke prevention.

This one-day, 8-hour course includes a course textbook. Upon completion, students will receive 4 CE hours. This course is recommended for nurses working in emergency departments, critical care units, interventional radiology suites, operating rooms, stroke rehabilitation units, clinics, and home settings.
