A photo of nursing students.Seton Hall University College of Nursing will be offering the Basic Health Assessment Refresher Course beginning December 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022. This online program provides an opportunity for registered nurses to further develop and hone basic health assessment skills before beginning an advanced health assessment course.

The course is open to Seton Hall nursing students who are currently enrolled in one of its Nurse Practitioner programs and have been taking classes for at least one semester. It satisfies the pre-requisite for those students entering Advanced Health Assessment and Graduate Nursing Practicum I in Fall 2022.
Nurse practitioner students outside of Seton Hall who need this course are also welcome to register.

The course will be available online Dec. 1, 2021 through Feb. 28, 2022. Students complete this course at their own pace within this timeframe to be awarded the 25 contact hours. Course content includes how to complete a comprehensive health history and conduct a physical exam on specific body parts as well as on the neurological system. Students study on their own using a textbook and online course material PLUS practice with a self-selected qualified mentor who is an APRN, MD, or DO and approved by the course coordinator.

Upon the completion of this course, students will have learned how to complete a head-to-toe physical assessment in a systematic manner by demonstrating the skills and techniques with their mentor.

College of Nursing professors Maryanne Barra, D.N.P., F.N.P.-B.C., R.N. and Moira Kendra, D.N.P., M.A., ACNP-BC, R.N. will instruct this course. Both are distinguished members of the Seton Hall faculty who have extensive teaching experience in both clinical and didactic settings.
