Chest X-Ray Interpretation for RNs and APNs
About: Throughout a nurse's career, there are many times that a chest x-ray is obtained to assist in the management of patient care. This seminar will provide you with a solid introduction to the interpretation of chest x-rays. Through the use of case studies, images of medical and surgical x-rays, and group discussion, we will explore common concepts of how to interpret an x-ray, for the normal films to various disease states. Through reviewing chest x-rays you will be able to anticipate a patient's needs.
