Take your nursing to the next level through Relational Practice. Hundreds of Licensed Practical Nurses heard Melodie Hull share this information in two live webinars in September. Now the same content is available to everyone in a 35-minute video presentation with information and examples of Relational Practice directly related to LPN practice.

This will help you:

  1. Can apply these learning points not only to nursing practice but everyday interactions with family friends and coworkers

  2. This course gave very valid insight to the patient. It is an ideal situation. In nursing today the amount of time you are allowed due to patient load does not often allow you to be able to spend the time to communicate on this level.
