Clinical Nursing 3025--OKC--2003
University of Oklahoma Clinical Instructor, Coordinator Professional Practice Lab
WELCOME TO CLINICAL 3025! Professional Practice Lab
Scroll down to the bottom and play games to practice medical terminology and dosage calculation. I highly recommend playing the Medical Terminology games before Clinical begins.
Refer to your book list for actual titles to the below books (the book list is in your course packet).

Everything we do in nursing should be evidenced-based which basically means we should base our interventions on sound research. Scroll down to the bottom to access the information for the Bird Library.
