Overview

"The new edition focuses more directly on the student market, including learning objectives and other helpful study aids. New material on developing evidence-based practice and a new chapter on the evaluation of contemporary practice against the social history of nursing complete the changes. Every chapter has been undated but the structure of the book has been retained. The new edition of this most successful textbook on nursing models develops a clearer understanding of the nature of nursing through the practical application of theoretical principles." This third edition will be welcomed as a vital introduction to the world of models for students of nursing, whether at an introductory level or for those returning to study in order to update their knowledge.
