The first step when using EHR Tutor is to set up Courses to group your students appropriately. If this is your first time using EHR Tutor and you have not been trained, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also review our Instructor Quick Start Guide at anytime.

- Enter Course Description. (This is not required)
- Barcode Warnings is selected (checked) by default. This box should remain checked to best simulate the current procedures being used in medical facilities. If checked, students will receive warnings that barcode scanning is required to identify the patient and meds before they can administer a medication. Students can continue without using a barcode scanner, but they must select a reason first for not scanning. You can find a more details about barcode warnings in the Tipsheet titled, Medication Administration with or without Barcode Scanning

A course will be hidden from your course list when the end date arrives to keep the list of courses more manageable for you and your students.

This makes it easy for you to use your same content and patients with another class or section at a later date.
