This section provides ebooks and digital textbooks to health professionals studying to become nurses, as well as those looking to go into the ancillary services.
Our digital library is home to valuable elearning resources to help you on your journey to becoming a nurse. There are four types of nursing - adult nursing, children’s nursing, learning disability nursing and mental health nursing. It is possible to study two of the fields at once, these are known as ‘dual field’ degrees, however, it’ll take you four years instead of three! Qualifying as a nurse will make you extremely employable, as you’ll be able to work anywhere in the UK and even internationally.
You won’t be spending all your time with your eyes fixed on an ebook though. Nursing degree demands you partake in practical placements, where you’ll work hands-on with patients in hospitals and community settings. Although all the knowledge you gain from us here at Kortext will be invaluable to you in the field!
The ancillary services refer to the health care provided exclusive of room and board. Supplies and laboratory tests given under home care, audiology, ambulatory surgical centres, hospice care, skilled nursing facility, home infusion, mobile lithotripsy, radiology, sleep centres, durable medical equipment and kidney dialysis are all examples of ancillary services. Without them, doctors, nurses and dentists would be unable to function effectively - they are vital!
The three classifications of the ancillary services are diagnostic, therapeutic and custodial. If a doctor sends a patient off for a blood test then they are using a diagnostic service. Proper exercise routines from a physical therapist after damaging a limb would be gained from the therapeutic service. Nursing home or hospice care is called the custodial care service.
