A fun, interactive way to begin mastering the nursing process! Chapters on each step of the nursing process present a step-by-step, problem-solving approach that helps students understand the meaning and language of nursing. Your students will actively seek solutions rather than passively assimilate knowledge.

  • Four patient vignettes unfold throughout the text to illustrate each step of the nursing process and to enable your students to learn through doing.
  • Practice activities, work pages, and case studies provide opportunities to examine and scrutinize patient situations, consider alternatives, and evaluate outcomes.
  • Final chapters include Documentation, Evaluation Checklist, Interactive Care Plan Worksheets, and a fifth vignette to ensure your students understand and can apply what they have just learned.
