Course Overview

Orthopaedic nursing is a nursing specialty focused on the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.

Orthopedic issues range from acute problems such as fractures or hospitalization for joint replacement to chronic systemic disorders such as loss of bone density or lupus erythematosus.

An Orthopaedic Nurse takes care of people with musculoskeletal diseases and disorders like arthritis, fractures, broken bones, joint replacements, genetic malformations and osteoporosis. When musculoskeletal problems require surgery, Orthopedic Nurses assist doctors with the operation and help them later with recovering their mobility and strength.

This module covers thematic areas of orthopedic nursing and is suitable for bot nurses with basic diploma and degree nurses.
