    24. Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

    24. Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

    Hello Future Nurses!!!
    In addition to March being DVT Awareness Month it is also Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Month. So in today’s episode we will be learning about MS.
    An estimated 1 million people live with MS in the United States. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, and it affects women three times more than men.
    Sadly, there is no cure.
    As nurses our goal is to help our patients live as independently as they can with MS by ensuring they are educated about the disease process, making their home safe, and assessing the need for mental health support. 
    In this week's episode of The Nursing School Simplified Podcast, you will learn the etiology, signs and symptoms, disease management, nursing considerations, and patient teaching.

    21. Strokes

    Hey Future Nurses!!!
    Welcome Back to The Nursing School Simplified Podcast. 
    This week we are learning about Strokes. 
    Each year almost 800K Americans have a stroke and 13.7 million strokes occur worldwide. 
    Strokes are preventable and educating our patients and community is our responsibility as nurses. 
    Learn signs and symptoms, assessment, patient teaching and more in this episode. 
    As promised here is the link to Ron Paul Having Stroke
    Watch in real time as this stroke occurs live on air. See if you can spot the changes in his face and listen to how quickly his speech becomes slurred, then garbled. 
    I hope this helps you understand your role as a nurse for patients with strokes. 
    Have a great week.
    All my best,

    Assessment
    Nursing Diagnosis
    Medications
    Labs
    And More...
