Educating frontline healthcare workers since 1994.

Hartman Publishing’s skills videos are here!

Each video contains an introduction to the skill or topic, followed by an explanation of the beginning steps that must be performed each time the skill is done. The needed supplies and equipment are listed slowly, giving the viewer time to pause or review the information before moving on. While the skill is being performed, a voiceover explains each step, often including a rationale for context. The ending steps that must be done each time the student has completed the skill are shown last.

In 2019, we produced new videos and revised some existing videos. We’ve denoted those videos with an asterisk. Here is the list of available videos, along with each one’s running time:

Deciding to produce these videos and to focus on the skills most often tested on the certification exam was the result of hundreds of conversations with instructors and program directors. Each video comes with closed captioning files in both English and Spanish if you need them.
