Editorial Reviews

Betsy Frank
This nursing fundamentals text has chapters on skills acquisition such as assessing vital signs, as well as chapters on ""exploring contemporary nursing"" and ""integrating basic concepts."" According to the author, this text is appropriate for all beginning nursing students, staff nurses who want quick access to information about skills that are unfamiliar or need updating, and for nurses in need of a refresher course. While the author states that this text is for all beginning nursing students, it seems most appropriate for LPN students and perhaps ADN students. Theoretical content is presented at the very basic level. However, this text does seem very appropriate for all students and practicing nurses who need a basic review of skill performance. Each chapter has an outline that includes content included in the chapter, a list of key terms, and learning objectives. In chapters on skill acquisition, the outline also contains information about nursing guidelines and nursing care plans included in the chapter. All skills described are at the end of the chapters, which allows for quick access of information. Chapters also include critical thinking exercises, which are focused primarily on fact application and not analysis or synthesis. This is a concise, step-by-step instructive guide for the performance of clinical skills. Chapters are well organized and easy to follow. The theoretical content presented is very basic, but some topics such as spirituality, however, are not covered at all. If this book were used for skills acquisition only, it would be appropriate for all levels of students. However, ADN and BSN faculties would probably choose another, more comprehensive text fortheir fundamentals courses.

Description: This nursing fundamentals text has chapters on skills acquisition such as assessing vital signs, as well as chapters on "exploring contemporary nursing" and "integrating basic concepts."
Purpose: According to the author, this text is appropriate for all beginning nursing students, staff nurses who want quick access to information about skills that are unfamiliar or need updating, and for nurses in need of a refresher course.
Audience: While the author states that this text is for all beginning nursing students, it seems most appropriate for LPN students and perhaps ADN students. Theoretical content is presented at the very basic level. However, this text does seem very appropriate for all students and practicing nurses who need a basic review of skill performance.
Features: Each chapter has an outline that includes content included in the chapter, a list of key terms, and learning objectives. In chapters on skill acquisition, the outline also contains information about nursing guidelines and nursing care plans included in the chapter.
