Core Curriculum for the RN First Assistant

New on our eBook Mobile App

Newly updated in 2014, the Core Curriculum for the RN First Assistant, 5th Edition is a valuable resource for educators and clinicians that provides a foundation for either course development or educational study. Designed to be supplemented, augmented, and adapted to fit the setting, the student, and the philosophy of the faculty, this resource is a collection of knowledge, evidence, and experience that fosters goal achievement for the RNFA.

The Core Curriculum for the RN First Assistant is a valuable tool for perioperative nurses choosing to enter the RNFA role—and for the preceptors and faculty members who will educate them to practice in their new role with confidence, competence, and professionalism.
