In order to prevent a breakdown in the skin, the nursing assistant needs to report the changes right away whenever there is a skin irregularity.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
