Editorial Reviews

Diana Sullivan
This introductory perioperative nursing textbook is the second edition of an early 1960s textbook. It is written in the format of introducing concepts and proceeding to mastery of these concepts to achieve safe perioperative outcomes. It presents information and concepts that are essential to perioperative nursing practice. The author has written the textbook to assist the learner and the educator in organizing and implementing a basic perioperative education program. It continually builds on basic to more complex concepts until all entry-level knowledge and skills are mastered. The textbook is intended to be used by the entry-level perioperative nurse and educator. It is also useful to the advanced practitioner desiring to validate or review basic knowledge. It would be a great review book for the practitioner preparing for certification. The learner objectives, content, post-test, and competency checklist format are the most outstanding features. This format allows for easy duplication for learning purposes and significantly broadens the application of the text in the clinical setting. This much-needed expansion of the first edition will continue to increase in value as a result of the ever-increasing reduction in perioperative educators, A novice practitioner or educator could quickly appear organized and self-directed by using this text. Because today's practice arena is outcome oriented, this text is outcome written. When patient outcomes are not optimally achieved, this text would be a valuable resource in identifying rationale and approaches to enhance patient outcomes.
