Pilot Study Nurse Comments

• Health lit should be a required course for every nurse. SO important! I loved this book and I will reread it for a reference!
• After completing I feel like I have actually learned something. Above all this course gave me more insight into patient teaching. 
• The course is very important. I think the patient often gets lost and doesn’t understand what is presented medically because it is not always clear. I think this course should be required. The medical community forgets to present material in a clear concise way.
• This was excellent and information that was new to me. It made me think about the importance of health literacy. I have been in nursing for so long I had forgotten how medical terms can be so new and confusing to others.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
