    • Information about the topic with details about key concepts.
    • A lecture and learning activities that apply concepts from the lecture.
    • A post test. You must complete and pass the test prior to classroom participation.

    NOTE: Do not register for this course if you have already purchased an online course from the UW-Madison School of Nursing. We will only schedule skills checkoff classes for individuals who purchase the online course from Children's Hospital of Wisconsin (through www.maxishare.com).
