Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cathy S. Heriot, BSN, MSN, PhD, RN (Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing)
Description: In the third edition of this basic nursing textbook, foundational concepts, skills, and techniques are updated to provide leading-edge knowledge. Basic concepts and skills, the five-step nursing process, psychosocial and developmental needs, safety and comfort needs, and basic physiological needs are discussed.
Purpose: The purpose is "to provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge and an understanding of essential nursing principle" that provides a firm foundation for more advanced areas of study while stressing the concept of caring.
Audience: Targeted for nursing students, this book can be used by students in a variety of nursing programs but speaks clearly to professional nursing with the inclusion of critical thinking activities, knowledge development, and a new chapter on promoting continuity of care and home health care.
Features: This colorful, easy to read textbook will appeal to nursing students at all levels. The consistent use of features such as gerontologic nursing practice boxes, sample care plans, case studies, and critical thinking activities contribute to the book's user friendliness.
Assessment: This foundational nursing textbook is an excellent relevant update that will prepare nurses for the 21st century. The simple to complex design establishes its broad appeal for various levels of nursing education. Case studies and critical thinking activities enable the reader to make links between concepts and apply them to practice situations. Inclusion of a new chapter on community nursing and health promotion with the nurse functioning as a member of a team establishes it as a leading-edge textbook. I consider the inclusion of a table on common basic cardiac dysrrhythmias and a procedure on the care of the client with chest tubes to be beyond the scope of a basic nursing textbook. The book is appropriate for nursing students, nursing unit resource centers, and nursing education library purchases..
