Welcome to the ProTrainings Medications course. This or any course can only give you the basic understanding of medications and their use, so you must make sure you know and follow your workplace policies and procedures.  If in doubt you must find out from your manager.

Hi, my name is Maxine York. I'm a registered nurse and have been for the last 16 years. Primarily, my background has been emergency services, but I've been very fortunate, and I've spent a lot of time within the care sector. I've been a practice nurse, I've been a staff nurse, and I'm currently a forensic nurse. I also do training in various areas. The course that you're about to watch consists of a number of short videos. You will have access to these videos for the next eight months. You can watch them and then refer back to them at any time. You do not have to complete this course in one sitting, you can refer back as many times as you need to. Once you have watched all the videos, there is a short multiple-choice test at the end. Once you've completed this, you are then able to print off your certificate and CPD statement. You also have a student manual. You can download this and print it off and use this as referral material. The medication course you're about to watch is a generic course but you will need to speak to your line manager about specific policies and procedures. I hope you enjoy this course, so let's get started.
