Overview

This comprehensive set of nursing skills and procedures can be used across the nursing curriculum. It also serves as a good procedure manual for hospitals and medical clinics.


The most complete, up-to-date, and useful guide to performing current, evidence-based, clinical nursing skills

Current with both the National Council Test Plan for RN and the NCLEX®, Clinical Nursing Skills: Basic to Advanced Skills teaches more than 550 nursing skills, from basic to complex. For each skill, students learn how to assess clients, formulate nursing diagnoses, perform procedures according to safe and accepted protocols, evaluate outcomes, and document pertinent data. Organized around the nursing process, the text helps readers understand the overall theory and rationales for each skill and technique. Coverage of evidence-based care, cultural/religious considerations, nursing management, and community-based nursing is provided throughout. Extensive case studies, critical-thinking features, NCLEX-style review questions, and new QSEN activities give students practice applying their knowledge and clinical reasoning. Easily adaptable to any conceptual curriculum model, Clinical Nursing Skills is the definitive resource for best practice nursing standards, guidelines, and competencies.

I am currently a nursing student and find that text books only teach and provide only so much information. Until I pick up this incridble book. I was overwhelmed with the amount of page (over 800 pages) and the details in pictures. Also i enjoy the step-by- step instruction to each procedure. Although it is $72 i believe it is a great investment because it had so much info in this one book as compared to other. Thus, truley making this book and bible for all furture and current nurses
