Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Viki Hedderick, DEd, MSN, BSN (Edinboro University of Pennsylvania)
Description: The focus of this book is to effectively present the basic fundamental concepts of nursing and associated skills. This edition updates the 2009 edition.
Purpose: This is designed to serve as a textbook as well as a reference resource throughout practice.
Audience: The intended audience includes nursing students and those returning to practice in need of a refresher. The material is appropriate for both the novice and as a reference for practicing nurses.
Features: The author's approach to the fundamental concepts is on target. It provides readers with the most current aspects of practice that reflect nursing theory and evidence-based practice. This edition adds to the customary content with a focus on NANDA, gerontology, pharmacology, and nutritional aspects of care. The electronic resources abound with opportunities for readers to view animation and video clips, review case studies, and practice NCLEX questions, as well as access to a Spanish-English glossary. These resources provide an avenue to suit all learning styles.
Assessment: This edition is most certainly an improvement of an already good product. The quality is high and will not disappoint readers or faculty.
