COVID Teaching Discussion
An integral part of nursing is teaching and there are always opportunities to teach your clients, patients, family, and friends. As nurses we often need to put our personal opinions aside and teach our patients about the science and facts of controversial topics such as Covid so they can make informed health choices. In this discussion, you will explore either the CDC.gov or NIH.gov national websites to review the known facts about Covid and format a teaching plan to educate your audience on one aspect of Covid that you have learned.
