Reviewer: Janice K. Warrington, MSNEd, RN (Delaware Technical & Community College)
Description: This comprehensive book provides students with a good foundation in nursing education. The book includes a CD with interactive learning activities as well as online learning resources and activities designed to enhance the text.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide nursing students with a good basic understanding of nursing concepts and principles, which the book does by presenting the most current information and principles of evidence-based practice.
Audience: This is designed for beginning students in all types of professional nursing programs. To accommodate the growing numbers of students whose native language is not English, the book has been reviewed by specialists in English as a second language to streamline the text and enhance comprehension.
Features: The book covers the nursing process, health promotion in acute and continuing care, cultural diversity, care of the older adult, and current trends in nursing, including culturally competent care, evidence-based practice, and resident handling safety. Each chapter includes details about media resources, key terms, and learning objectives to help students focus on what is important. The material is presented in various formats, such as concept maps, and in the context of the nursing process with a focus on client teaching, evidence-based practice, safety alerts, special needs of older adults, and cultural aspects of care.
Assessment: Written in a way that beginning nursing students can understand, the book presents the material in a variety of formats to help learners of all types. This edition provides the most up-to-date information in nursing and offers students a valuable resource even after completing their nursing program.

    Fundamentals of Nursing

    It is a mishap that my nursing school requires this textbook and the accompanying study guide. After reading the first two chapters many times, I believed that these chapters were poorly written. First, I am unable to find answers for questions in the study guide. I have to use the internet to look up terms such as intermediate care, skilled nursing facilities, DRGs, RUGs, and so on. Second, when introducing a key concept such as DRGs, several quotes were used instead of statements. The internet provided a lucid explanation of DRGs. Third, in my point of view the study guide did not leave enough room for me to write in the answer to the questions. Fourth, the textbook gives the wrong answer to the review question number 5 of ch. 2. The answer should be (1) occupational health nursing, yet in the answer key, it is (3). When looking at the rationale for question number 5, the textbook gives you the answer as (3) occupational health nursing. The number 3 is a typo that should have been 1. There is no room for error in the healthcare field, so there should be error in educating future healthcare professionals. Good Luck,

    Pray you do not need this book for your nursing class

    Especially pray that your instructors will not utilize the accompanying test bank. This compundium of the arcane, innane, and just plain stupid relates very poorly to the text.

    This was an awsome first nursing book!!

    This was one of the first classes I took in Nursing School and one of the first books I was required to buy~Which I was ever so grateful. I read every page of the book. I do not intend on selling it back either~It will be one that I will always look back on for info and to refer to~
