    • General

      The opening and closing steps are regarded as the indirect care skills. These steps are of immense importance because they encompass all of the features that improve patients' outcomes and experiences such as privacy, infection prevention, communication, ethical principles, safety and comfort. 

      Furthermore, nursing assistants must display proficiency in performance of both the opening and the closing steps in order to receive a passing result on the skills demonstration section of the certified nurse aide (CNA) certifying examinations in many states in the US. This course covers the opening and closing steps for nursing assistants.
