Head-to-toe assessments allow nurses to assess the health status of patients by following a checklist of criteria.

On the job, your head-to-toe nursing assessment will be performed much faster, and it may be different or more specialized to accommodate the patients' needs within your nursing specialty.

This assessment represents a general assessment checklist (or cheat sheet) that you might encounter in nursing school. (Note: Always follow your instructor's requirements or your employer's assessment protocols).
