This new course is a unique online program designed for nurses who are new to rehabilitation. The course is ideal for facilities and nurse educators looking to provide consistent, flexible, and personalized rehabilitation nursing orientation and education for their staff.
While treating the sequelae of acquired brain injury, we must continually consider how we respond to the patient as an individual, offering treatment options and various ways to manage the whole person throughout recovery.
