Top reviews from Infection Prevention in Nursing Homes

By TSNov 8th 2019

The information is well written and the video do help remember the material but it's a little bit too telenovela for me.

By TGSep 13th 2016

A great course with tons of information. I love how they make their video's, you can't help but want to learn.
