Focused Neurological Assessment


The fundamental processes of the brain and nervous system are key to understanding why nurses perform a focused neurological assessment. If there is a disruption to any of these processes, the whole body suffers. This one (1) hour course will discuss specific neurological history questions and exam techniques for your adult patient. Physical exam techniques such as inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation will be highlighted. Additionally, throughout the course, you will learn how alterations in your neurological assessment findings could indicate potential nervous system abnormalities.
