Hello! I am looking for some help. The college where I teach is considering going to a head-to-toe assessment for our 1st year BScN students and we don't know where to begin....we are searching through texts but we are looking for something that is 10 - 15 minutes to complete.

Is there anyone out there with a lead or willing to pass on their checklist?

I could really use the help!


Mosby has an assessment book that I believe has a detailed assessment and it gives the information in the time period you request. If you search the elsevier website, you will get the book.

Thank you!! We are doing head to toe assessments with the freshmen in clinical lab this week. Your card corresponds nicely with the handout they will be receiving. I'm going to print them out on a 4x6 index card and give each student one to take to clinical with them as a reminder.

Hello Haze,

I'm attaching the pocket card template. It is a word document and set up to print out on a 4x6 blank index card. I usually print page 1 on the desired number of cards then flip them over and print page 2. Hope this works for you.
