More About This Textbook

Overview

This very popular full-color text, now in its Tenth Edition, combines theoretical nursing concepts, step-by-step skills and procedures, and clinical applications to form the foundation of the LPN/LVN course of study. This edition retains the well-liked organization and features of previous editions, including an impressive and comprehensive ancillary package for students and faculty, end-of-unit exercises, and specially displayed Gerontologic Considerations. In addition, it features new Nutrition Notes and Pharmacological Considerations written by renowned experts as well as thoroughly updated content on quality and safety and new technologies, as well as nursing practice, laws and ethics, recording and reporting, nutrition, fluid and chemical balance, asepsis, infection control, medication administration, cost-related issues, emerging healthcare settings, concept mapping, malpractice, documentation and reporting, HIPAA, and more. The accompanying for-sale Student Study Guide has been converted to a Student Workbook, with the answers available only to instructors online, to enhance the student’s study experience. This product is truly a comprehensive curricular resource, especially when packaged with its sister publication, Introductory Medical-Surgical Nursing.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
