Course Details

Overview

Essential (primary) hypertension is one of the most important preventable contributors to illness and death in the United States. Frequently termed the silent killer, hypertension progresses with few symptoms until blood pressure rises to dangerous levels. An estimated 78 million nonpregnant Americans age 20 and older have hypertension, making this disease the most common reason for primary care physician visits — and making antihypertensive drugs the most frequently prescribed medications. This course provides nurses with information on how to manage patients with hypertension based on the JNC-8 guidelines.
