Overview

Revised to emphasize critical thinking, this Fifth Edition is the most engaging, student-friendly, and comprehensive fundamentals textbook for beginning nursing students. The unique, holistic "blended skills" approach to nursing care integrates technical, cognitive, ethical/legal, and interpersonal skills.

Each Fifth Edition chapter opens with three real-world cases, which are used throughout the chapter as examples. Reflective Practice boxes written by Carol Taylor's students describe realistic situations and ask challenging questions. The updated coverage includes discussions of evidence-based practice and a new chapter on complementary and alternative modalities.

A back-of-book CD-ROM has tutorials on NCLEX innovative items, and fluid and electrolyte balance.

Editorial Reviews

Mary McCall Swint
This is an organized, attractively designed, hardbound fundamental textbook of nursing. The purpose is to provide healthcare providers with a holistic, diverse, scientific, technical base of knowledge with a commitment to interpersonal caring and accountability. It has been written for nurses, especially beginning nurses, to enhance their nursing practice in traditional and nontraditional healthcare settings. However, other healthcare students and advanced practice nurses could use the text as well. The book features organized units, color-coordinated charts and topical information, definitions of terms in the inside cover of the book, a holistic approach, care competencies, inclusion of diverse population groups, traditional and nontraditional settings, communication skills, related research, in-depth glossary, and updated references. This highly readable text presents the content logically and accurately. This excellent textbook is of higher quality than other current textbooks on fundamental nursing. Information has been written to provide the learner with a systematic, logical, and sequential format. Each chapter has an extended overview with objectives and key terms, key points, guidelines for care, and a bibliography. All these features enhance the beginning student's attention span and motivation to learn. There are no gaps in the written material. It would have been interesting to know what the nursing practice standards of nursing associations in other countries are. This textbook would be valuable to students.

A serious new entrant in the nursing textbook field for undergraduate students. It focuses on how nurses can work with clients to promote healthy physiologic and psychosocial responses. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Allen Carey, PhD (University of Oklahoma College of Nursing)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a book that addresses all aspects of the fundamentals of nursing.
Purpose: The purpose is to maximize visual learning for students. This edition features a new art program and an integrated, cohesive, student-focused suite of multimedia products. Brand new icons direct students to free video clips and online activities.
Audience: Registered nurse students are the target audience.
Features: New concept maps walk students through the nursing process for selected case-study patients. The book maintains a holistic "blended skills" approach to nursing care and focuses on case-based learning and critical thinking. A CD-ROM includes video clips, skills checklists, chapter review questions, an NCLEX-RN alternate-format question tutorial, and a Spanish-English audio glossary. A companion online course is available free with purchase of the book.
Assessment: The quality of this book is excellent. The layout and use of color enhances the presentation of the content.

    Worst experience!!!

    I gave this a one star because 0 was not allowed. I looked up 7th edition. One expects that if you list something as 7th everywhere on the listing, the buyer would get a 7th edition. Not a note with the book telling you the book is the same (when by my professor's admissions) it is not! I contacted the seller and they ignored me. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY!!!! HE IS A CHEAT!
