Understanding each body system and how they interact is the foundation of your nursing practice. You will apply your knowledge of system’s anatomy and physiology to every patient you assess. Knowing how the systems affect each other will give you the intellectual tools you need to formulate your care plans. Come back whenever you need a review or submit your own creative resource to give back and help teach other future nurses.
