Legal knowledge can improve healthcare outcomes and promote improved patient safety

How would you, as a capable and confident nurse, feel if a seemingly inadvertent mistake changed the course of a patient's life forever? 

Unfortunately, mistakes happen and the results can be devastating for all the parties involved. Mistakes are also an invaluable learning opportunity. Discover important and practical lessons from hundreds of nursing and medical malpractice cases. 

"Legal Issues in Nursing" was developed on the belief that legal knowledge can improve healthcare outcomes and promotes an understanding of nursing responsibility as a way to improve patient safety. 100% of the nurses who took this course said that the knowledge they gained made them more aware of their legal responsibilities, improved their nursing documentation and made them a better nurse. 

This course can be applied for 6.5 hours towards the annual continued learning (Quality Assurance, Reflective Learning, Professional Development, Competence Assessment, Practice Review) required by your nursing registration body! Actual course run time is 100 minutes. Please contact your association or employer for potential funding.

  • Learn about the medical legal landscape and an understanding of the legal process
  • Work through a nursing negligence case study
  • Identify the most frequently sued nursing specialty areas
