Read an Excerpt

Photo Guide of Nursing Skills has been designed to present nursing skills in a unique format: step-by-step photographs of essential skills that student nurses learn as part of their professional education. Mastery of this content is critical, since much of the time that nurses spend with clients is devoted to skill performance. There is no easier way to learn and master a skill than to visualize it as a step-by-step sequential process. This format enables the student to see, rather than just read about, each skill.

The authors have separated the skills into units containing chapters that progress from basic to intermediate level of difficulty. Each chapter includes introductory material providing the theoretical foundation necessary to understand the skill components; step-by-step photos and/or line drawings depicting each skill; clinical notes and safety alerts—additional information necessary for skill mastery; and Beyond the Skill material as an adjunct to the skill itself.

Key features include:

  • More than 1300 full-color photos and line drawings, with minimal accompanying text, illustrate over 300 step-by-step procedures. This book, including essential basic to intermediate level skills, will serve as a useful supplement to any textbook that addresses fundamental concepts of nursing.
  • Text material that includes quick-reference clinical content, safety alerts, charts and tables, and Beyond the Skill adjunct material to supplement the individual steps for each skill.
  • A Critical Thinking Focus section at the end of each unit. Exercises focus on nursing competencies to assist learners in integrating knowledge, judgment, and skill. A section on unexpected outcomes and alternative nursing actions assists students in analyzing outcomes and contributes to rational problem solving and decision making. A self-check evaluation section is included at the end of each chapter.
  • Clear, logical, and straightforward page layout and presentation of material. This allows the student to learn the steps of skill performance with minimal reliance on the text copy.

Photo Guide of Nursing Skills is a heavily illustrated, full-color presentation of necessary basic and intermediate skills for students enrolled in all types of nursing programs. This book provides a useful supplement to any text that focuses on basic nursing concepts, and will especially assist those individuals who learn most efficiently through visual cues rather than by verbal means.

The three authors, after completing the fifth edition of Clinical Nursing Skills, realized that a different type of skills textbook would fill a gap at the fundamental level of nursing education. As a result of many long hours of discussion, they elected to present essential skills in an illustrated format with a step-by-step approach for students who learn more easily through visualization. Thus, the creation of this photo guide.

The authors wish to thank all those who helped and contributed to this textbook, including Ron May, the photographer; Karen Hoxeng, the project concept director; the various editors and proofreaders; the indexer; and the reviewers of the text.
