Text, illustrations, and exercises are provided in this set of learning modules to teach nurses and nursing students various patient care skills. The first module, "How to Write a Nursing Care Plan" by Dorcas S. Kowalski, discusses three tasks in developing patient care plans: identifying and prioritizing a patient's needs, gathering information about the patient, and planning methods of meeting the patient's needs. The second module, "Nursing Care of a Child with Cystic Fibrosis" by Grace Perkins, discusses measures to be taken in preventing respiratory infections, complications of respiratory infections, malnutrition, steatorrhea, and heat prostration, which children with cystic fibrosis are prone to develop. The third module, "Feeding the Hydrocephalic Baby" by Vivian Filer, details procedures and methods for holding, feeding, and burping hydrocephalic infants. Each module describes and illustrates procedures, provides reinforcement exercises with immediate feedback, and concludes with a post-test and answer key. The time required to complete the modules is specified, ranging from 10 to 30 minutes. (JP)
