All nursing students are taught a range of core nursing skills in their first year at Birmingham City University. These include nursing observations such as taking manual blood pressure, tympanic temperature and pulse, and assessing an individuals respiration.

The observations enable nursing students to detect changes in the individuals condition quickly and accurately. They can be reported to mentors on placement so that appropriate actions can be decided. Undertaking nursing observations is a fundamental element of care.
