Overview

This comprehensive collection of skills instruction, comprised of fifty-three self-contained modules, is now presented in a full-color, single volume. Modules increase in complexity as students progress through the book.

Flexible enough to meet the needs of any program, the book also has a self-instructional approach that is popular with faculty and students alike. With the demands on nursing faculties of increased student numbers and limited or no increase in faculty time available in the skills lab, the self-instructional approach is pertinent in today's market.

The flexible, modular format lets you learn at your own pace, and lets you focus on the specific skills needed to care for your patient. Expanded critical thinking exercises in every module provide more opportunities to test your knowledge and hone your problem solving skills. The full-color design and new art program presents essentials skills in an easy-to-understand format.
