NURS 6512 DQ Assessment of the Skin Hair and Nails

NURS 6512 DQ Assessment of the Skin Hair and Nails

 

Something as small and simple as a mole or a discolored toenail can offer meaningful
clues about a patient’s health. Abnormalities in skin, hair, and nails can provide non-
invasive external clues to internal disorders or even prove to be disorders themselves.
Being able to evaluate such abnormalities of the skin, hair, and nails is a diagnostic
benefit for any nurse conducting health assessments.
This week, you will explore how to assess the skin, hair, and nails, as well as how to
evaluate abnormal skin findings.
Learning Objectives
Students will:

  Apply assessment skills to diagnose skin conditions

 Apply concepts, theories, and principles relating to health assessment techniques and
diagnoses for the skin, hair, and nails
