Overview

This exciting revision of Applying Nursing Process - which received a Sigma Tau Best Pick Award - illustrates how to use the nursing process to think critically in today's fast-paced clinical practice. An emphasis on outcome-focused, evidence-based care guides the nurse on how to plan, provide, and evaluate care of the patient. Straight forward language, abundant examples, including valuable quote from nurses exemplifying current best practices, critical thinking exercises and case scenarios help the nurse think about independent and collaborative roles in various settings. This superb text explains how the nursing process has changed to a more dynamic, less linear approach, with a focus on proactivity to highlight the nurse' s role in the prediction, prevention, and management of health problems.

A Brandon-Hill Recommended Title.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: This book offers a blend of application of the traditional nursing process with critical thinking. The material is presented in a concise, up-to-date, user friendly fashion.
Purpose: The aim is to provide a reality-based guide to assist the student or practicing nurse in the application of the nursing process. Critical thinking exercises assist in illustrating how to effectively use the nursing process in a clinical situation. These worthy objectives are met.
Audience: The main audience is student nurses, according to the author. For nurses returning to the workforce, this material would be a nice refresher and very useful as well. The author is a very well known educator.
Features: The noted new features of this book make it stand out from the growing number of nursing process books. The typical elements of the nursing process are covered, but the addition of the shift in thinking from diagnose and treat to predict, prevent, and manage represents the new era in healthcare. Inclusion of "how to prevent errors" is a wonderful new and important edition. The references are very current and pertient to the topic. Inclusion of computer usage and critical pathways again reflects the author's ability to bring reality to the book. Another interesting tool is the use of "Voices" or quotes from nurses in the trenches. These real life additions bring more understanding of clinical nursing to students with little practical experience. The only real disappointment is with all the emphasis on critical thinking and outcomes that a shift was not made from learning outcomes at the beginning of the chapters to competencies since they are the newest trend in education and practice.
Assessment: This book goes far beyond competing books with its new features for this edition. It represents a new era in the "nursing process." As the author promised, there is a dose of reality in every chapter. This book is a wonderful educational tool.
